Void was pleased to host Niamh O’Malley in her solo exhibition at Void Gallery entitled No Distance.

Niamh O’Malley’s practice is concerned with the slippage between a moment and an image. She investigates the construction and arrangement of time and document as revealed through both the moving image and painted still.

Her works combine moments of sync and resolution with unsettling agitations in the recorded form. Volatile visual planes provoke barriers and gaps in the viewing experience.
