Hopeful Structures


In 2009, Dublin City Council Arts office launched a new pilot initiative in the Red Stables Artists Studios (with the kind assistance of The Arts Council), to commission an emerging curator to plan and devise an outdoor exhibition of temporary artworks for Saint Anne’s Park.

For this year’s project invited curator, Sally Timmons has selected two artists to consider the notion of a folly (defined as an ornamental structure or building, whose creation reflects a whimsical inclination on the part of the builder). With this in mind, the artists Mark Clare and Fionnuala Hanahoe have developed artworks that will provide a physical and visual interference within the environs of the park, holding intrigue as visually stimulating yet seemingly futile functional structures.

The last two days of the project are this weekend, Saturday and Sunday from 12pm until 5pm. A closing reception for the project, Hopeful Structures will take place at The Red Stables Artists Studios in Saint Annes Park, Dublin from 4 – 6 pm this coming Saturday 3rd July
