Featuring 27 photographs from The Lawrence Photograph Collection of Queenstown / Cobh, Co. Cork, Ireland.
All Proceeds benefiting Sirius Arts Centre and the continued renovation of the Old Yacht Club Building in Cobh.

 

The Lawrence Collection, one of the most significant early photographic collections documenting Ireland, consists of some 40,000 glass-plate negatives taken between 1870 and 1914. Chief photographer Robert French traveled to every county in Ireland taking pictures, and many of the photos were reproduced on postcards and in albums during the late 19th and early 20th century.

The collection is named after William Mervin Lawrence, who opened a photography studio in Dublin in 1865 and hired French as one of his photographers. The plates are now housed in the National Library of Ireland.

French was born in Dublin and spent some time working in the Royal Irish Constabulary, then joined Lawrence Studio, and he worked his way up as printer, artist and then assistant photographer. He took over 30,000 photographs of the “Lawrence Collection”.

THIS WAY TO ENCHANTMENT

THIS WAY TO ENCHANTMENT

Works by Rory Tangney

 

Dublin based artist Rory Tangney has brought together a combination of found and new materials and sounds, in a body of work in which the central question being asked is whether science can provide us everything we need in a post-religious world. This is essentially a search for the ‘spirit’in the machine’, ideas about obsolescence - of technology, people and ideas – emerge through sculptural objects, sound and drawings that are carefully imagined and skillfully made.

 

Exhibition runs until Sunday 16 November
