The Starry Messenger at Void Gallery

The Starry Messenger has evolved from an interest in the 'perceptual moment' of film, a borrowed phrase that is intended to position filmmaking and film watching as an expanded way of thinking in a visual language not limited by strict rationality and simple causality, which engages with the materiality of film as a manifestly analogue [...]

Mel Brimfield at Void Gallery

Death and Dumb is an exhibition by London based artist Mel Brimfield and curated by Elaine Forde. Brimfield’s practice provides the audience with an eccentric, highly original, and infectiously humorous art history lesson. She tactically confuses, questions, and amusingly complicates the terms of validity in the history of art and the politics of representation.   The [...]

Andrei Molodkin exhibition at Void Gallery, 2013

Void Gallery is pleased to present the premier of Andrei Molodkin’s Catholic Blood. Molodkin’s controversial work reflects an enduring examination into the corruption imbued in social, political and religious constructs. Using human blood, crude oil and ballpoint pen, the artist forces the viewer to re-engage with uncomfortable concepts of power and perversion inherent in society [...]

Laura Morrison & Maite Zabala exhibition at Void Gallery, 2013

Void Gallery is delighted to present the work of two emerging artists; Laura Morrison and Maite Zabala, curated by Ciarán Ó Dochartaigh. Concerned with the making of objects, texts and images that sit both firmly in a sculptural tradition and necessarily untether from these bounds, the artists create distinctly different works. Ó Dochartaigh curated the [...]
