CORBAN WALKER: 23 June – 19 August 2012

Corban Walker: Please Adjust

This exhibition features one major work from the Irish Pavilion at the 2011 Venice Art Biennale, re-imagined for St Carthage Hall.

Please Adjust, the largest work, comprises 176 interlocking stainless steel cube frames. As the title suggests the configuration which is subject to alteration at each installation questions the notion of sculpture as a constant stable form. The title also references the enormous economic crisis that has affected nearly every country since 2008, Ireland in particular, and how we as individuals may have to adjust expectations and positions. Just as each unit in this sculpture depends on the other for stability, individuals are all subject to the consequences of one action against another and exterior forces beyond our control.
