A sensory treat

A Netherlands-based visual artist has chosen Cork as the location for her first ever solo exhibition.

Dublin-born Cara Farnan, who lives and works in Utrecht, is bringing her exhibition ‘Sometimes the River Flows Backwards’ to Leeside today, showcasing her newest works in sculpture, drawing, text, and sound.

As an artist Cara is described as being drawn to the space between what we know about the world, and what we sense about it.

Her latest work explores her interest in mouths, the second person pronoun, what it means for a body to be both material and event, and materiality at the points where we exchange with the world around us.

Cara received her BA in Fine Print from NCAD, Dublin in 2016, and is currently studying for her MA in Utrecht.

She has completed residencies in Dublin, Finland, Wexford and New York.

In 2018, Cara curated a one-day exhibition, ‘Gathering on Dollymount Strand’ and produced Emma Brennan’s performance work ‘Heed’, to the Mound for Dublin Fringe Festival.

The Cork exhibition, which opens today, Thursday 9 January, will run until 7 February at Studio 12 in Backwater Artists Group on Wandesford Quay.
