LCGA Exhibitions


Method C at King John's Castle

September 2010,
King John's Castle, Nicholas Street, Limerick

Limerick City Gallery of Art is pleased to present Method C, a solo exhibition by Karl Burke at King John's Castle, Castle Island, Limerick City.

The Opening Reception will take place on Saturday 18 September 2010, 2-4pm.

Karl Burkes practice celebrates the co-operative tension between art and science, on the one hand a mathematical notion of time and space and on the other hand an undefined flux of sensations. The artist endeavors to create an experiential situation enhancing the empirical role of the viewer through logical interventions in or contemporary interpretations of a given space or location. Set in the Medieval Quarter of the city, Method C presents sculpture, film and sound works providing a new experience within the historic structure of the castle.

As part of the LCGA events for Culture Night on Friday 24 September, Burke will give an improvised sound performance with Russell Hart (economicthoughtprojects) in Istabraq Hall at Limerick City Council, Merchants Quay at 8pm. The performance follows their recent collaboration on the sound sculpture 'Compositions 1-36', produced through sound files recorded and processed by the artists at the Irish Museum of Modern Art. Admission is free; booking is advised.

Karl Burke lives and works in Dublin and Sligo, Ireland. Recent and forthcoming exhibitions include: Karl Burke, Flashpoint Gallery, Washington DC (2010); Nothing is Impossible, Mattress Factory, Pittsburg (2010); What happens next is a secret, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2010); Automatic, Auto Italia, London and Pallas Contemporary Projects, Dublin (2009); Soundtrack for a Day, Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo (2009); Volume V: I think I remember, Temple Bar Galleries, Dublin (2009); Corpus Callosum, Studio 1.1, London (2009); Spaces, Wexford Arts Centre, Wexford (2008); Common Place, Dublin (2007).
