Ailbhe Ní Bhriain - Inscriptions IV

Domo Baal is proud to present 'Inscriptions IV', Ailbhe Ní Bhriain's fourth solo exhibition in the gallery. The exhibition will include photographic, tapestry and sculptural works.

The exhibition's title derives from the earliest known museological writing in the western world – Samuel Quiccheberg's 'Inscriptions or Titles of the Immense Theatre' (1565), which details the practice of museums and the organisation of the world's objects into classes and subclasses. This was essentially an instruction manual for the creation of private collections, with an explicit Western imperialist agenda.

Ní Bhriain's work since 2017 has made reference to this text, as she constructs an enigmatic visual vocabulary to explore the relationship between systems of representation and cultural control.
