HERE IS WHERE WE MEET

HEDWIG BARRY

FORMS Gallery, in collaboration with the NIROX Foundation, is pleased to present Hedwig Barry's first solo exhibition, Here Is Where We Meet. The exhibition brings together a collection of new sculptures and paintings completed during Barry's seven-week residency at NIROX. Shifting between two-dimensional and three-dimensional media, Barry's work invites us to think about the formal and physical limits of, and intersections between, painting and sculpture.

Borrowing its title from a novel by John Berger (Here Is Where We Meet, 2005), the exhibition echoes several of the themes and sentiments that emerge in the book: playfulness, remembering, journeys, mourning and desire. And like Berger's prose, Barry's work searches for a language to mediate between feeling, metaphor and visuality.

The exhibition extends from the Covered Space at the NIROX Sculpture Park to the park grounds, until 13 March and will be supplemented by smaller-scale works and exploratory video pieces on show in and adjacent to the studio in which Barry has been working for the duration of the residency.
