Preoccupied with the body as a site of both new possibilities and limitations.

Jason Dunne’s recent work takes material from daily events concerning the body as the basis for creating sculptures that resemble the human form but diverge from its usual logic. 

In a new installation at Siamsa Tíre, amalgamated creatures which are built using diverse materials seem to devise new uses for the gallery space through their unusual and symbolic gestures.
