Wilhelm Sasnal: ’Take Me To The Other Side’
18th April – 21st September 2014
Lismore Castle Arts
Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to announce that the annual international exhibition for 2014 will be a solo show by Polish artist Wilhelm Sasnal (b. 1972), ‘Take Me To The Other Side’, which opens on 18 April and continues until 21 September at Lismore Castle Arts, Lismore, Co Waterford, Ireland. Staged in collaboration with Sadie Coles HQ, the exhibition will feature new painting, drawing and film work.
’Take Me To The Other Side’ will explore the influence on Sasnal of the fairytales of Hans Christian Andersen. As a young boy growing up in 1970s Poland, Sasnal often read collected volumes of Andersen’s stories published in Polish. The vivid illustrations contained within these volumes have continued to inspire the artist’s practice. For this exhibition, he has created a new body of work which references those illustrations, realised in his signature reductive graphic style.
To coincide with the launch of the exhibition, there will be a panel discussion at Lismore Castle Arts on contemporary painting. Throughout the summer there will be a programme of events involving cultural commentators and a specially commissioned publication will be published in summer 2014.
