I promised to give more information about the exhibition which has opened just over the road from the apartment in The Observatory: Wildly Different Things New York and Dublin – a BlueLeaf Unlimited Project 25th February to 20th March 2010 (www.blueleafgallery.com).
K and I went yesterday and found it most interesting. For me the best exhibit was a film showing Mary who used to pray and dance in the middle of O’Connell Street doing her thing.
There are some amazing exhibits and some even more amazing prices.
Searching for Evidence of False-Flag Operation at the Lake Isle of Inisfree – collage 15 x 16cm by Sean Hillen
Ass Festival, or a Painting in which nine higher men search for Zarathustra but completely miss him, Zarathustra finds himself in trouble, a potter who does not know his craft takes revenge on his pots
by Nick Musaelian (€6810)
Prices range from €50 for a bullet with your name on it – engraved aluminium bullets hung from fishing lines (not sure if that price is for one or for what looks like about 50 of them) – upwards to €14,000 for a painting by Tom Climent.
It is well worth a visit, not to buy necessarily, but to view an exciting range of artistic endeavours by Irish and American exhibitors.
