For Sediment, Neudecker will present some key pieces taking the visitors through various strands of her practice.  This ranges from early map works, the Plastic Vanitas still life series, Deep-Sea and Arctic projects including new two-dimensional works and a new tank work specially commissioned for the exhibition. In promoting her enquiry in the relationship between the actual and mediated, she keeps returning to looking at landscape tradition in art, dealing simultaneously with questions around technology, science, changes to our environment, collective experience and time.


Úna McCarthy, Director/Curator of the exhibition remarked “this is a First for Limerick City Gallery of Art as it is Mariele’s first major solo exhibition in a cultural institution in Ireland and we have commissioned one of her signature tank pieces for this exhibition along with a series of two dimensional works.  The exhibition will travel to the UK in 2020 and LCGA is working with Bath Spa University to publish a book of the work”.

Mariele Neudecker was born in Dusseldorf and studied art in Germany, Ireland and the UK. She now lives in Bristol.  This is her first major solo exhibition in an Irish cultural institution and includes works from the 90s up to the recent past as well as new commissions, made especially for LCGA.


Solo exhibitions include the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham; Tate Britain and St Ives; the Kunstmuseum, Trondheim, Norway. Neudecker has also shown widely in international group exhibitions.

Neudecker is Professor and Research Fellow at Bath Spa University, Fellow for CERN’s Visiting Arts Programme and works on the European Commission’s JRC Science and Arty advisory panel.


Neudecker is represented by Galerie Barbara Thumm, Berlin, Thomas Rehbein Galerie, Cologne, Galerie in Camera, Paris and Galeria Pedro Cera, Lisbon.  Courtesy for the works is between the galleries listed.
