All to the good

MFA exhibition

NCAD - Annex, 101-3 James' Street, Dublin 8.

18th - 26th June 2016.



We colonise, commercialise and consume flora, fauna and mankind in an infinite push-pull, capitalist existence. Utilising a meta-language of materials, Saidhbhín Gibson constructs sculptural hinterland hybrids that pose questions surrounding our increasingly cleansed experience of nature and humankind.

The work in the exhibition All to the good is the culmination of her research into her studio practice during a two year, full-time MFA in Sculpture & Expanded Practice at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin.
