Meant to Fade is a curated group exhibition featuring artworks that celebrate ephemerality, transformation, and the temporalities of non-toxic, natural, and living materials. The works push against long-standing norms of artistic display and function, challenging the notion of creations outliving their creators. In a world finally coming to terms with the damaging environmental impacts of certain materials and methods, artists featured in Meant to Fade have embraced impermanence and decay.
This exhibition will include the work of six Ireland-based artists and two to three German artists working with alternative photographic processes, repurposed textiles, plant-based inks, and sculptural arrangements of the found and foraged.More information
