Escape Velocity - New Works by Ivan Twohig

Escape VelocityAn exhibition of new works by Clare-born artist Ivan Twohig takes place in Glór from the 6th to the 23rd March 2009. "Escape Velocity is a term used to describe how, in (post)modern culture, things seem to lose sight of their historical references to reality and enter into a new stage of the hyper-real. Contemporary art often makes reference to previous artworks in some sort of hope of validation. What does this desire to wittily reference past masters or art history in modern art really say about the current state of art and culture in general?" The works on show mix art history with elements of comedy and contemporary mass culture. Not to be missed.
