Ailbhe Ní Bhriain: Interval One (Dream Pool)

16 Jun-31 Aug 2023

London WC1N 2ES


Domo Baal is proud to present Ailbhe Ní Bhriain's fifth solo exhibition in the gallery, Interval One (Dream Pool)

Ailbhe Ní Bhriain works with film, computer generated imagery, collage, tapestry, print and installation. Her work is rooted in an exploration of imperial legacy, human displacement and the Anthropocene. These intertwined subjects are approached through an associative use of narrative and a painstakingly crafted visual language that verges on the surreal. She sidesteps directive positions and familiar binaries, exposing instead the layers of ambiguity and contradiction embedded in these fraught issues. The resulting worlds she creates are at once idiosyncratic, irresistible and deeply unsettling.

Ní Bhriain has received critical acclaim for her recent presentation at the 16th Lyon Biennale as well as exhibitions at Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, Dublin; Broad Museum, Michigan; Hayward Touring, UK, Whitechapel Gallery, London; CCA Glasgow; Hammer Museum, LA; Istanbul Modern and Museo Reina Sofía, Madrid. Works by Ní Bhriain are in the collections of Crawford Art Gallery, Cork, Ireland, The Arts Council of Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, and OPW (Office of Public Works) Ireland. Domo Baal is delighted to work alongside the Kerlin Gallery, Dublin who will present her first solo show at Kerlin in November 2023.

Ailbhe Ní Bhriain and Domo Baal would like to thank Culture Ireland/Cultúr Éireann for their support.
