Call It What You Will 

Artists; Maria Finucane, Shelagh Honan, Mike McLoughlin, Fiona O’Dwyer, Marie Phelan.
Curated by Shelagh Honan

    Opening 6.30pm, Thursday 18th July

Call It What You Will  is a lens-based exhibition that includes installation, sound, video, photography and camera obscura.

Overarching themes such as memory, place and narrative are permeated by an underlining presence of spirit, body and voice that resonates throughout the work. From its initial inception Call It What You Will was conceived as an adaptable exhibition framework to support and encourage risk taking and experimental practice for the installation of new work within an exhibition space.
