Saidhbhín Gibson


Éigse Prize for work by a recent graduate has been presented to
Saidhbhín Gibson for the piece 
Once More with Feeling and +x

Saidhbhín Gibson | Once more with feeling and +x | Oak, perspex, plastic | 185 x 88 x 30 cm

We were drawn to the apparent simplicity and formal qualities of these sculptures. The forms are
technically accomplished and clearly demonstrate a mastery of sculptural skill while also containing
weighty narratives about our environment and the ways that we live in the world. The use of wood and
perspex is a perfect distillation of where we are today in our ecosystems as plastic pollutes every part
of nature.
