Donal Kelly – ”Walking Edges” Exhibition Launch at Outset Gallery

Outset Gallery is excited to announce their first production as part of the 2024 Program: Donal Kelly “Walking Edges” exhibition. This Exhibtion will run from March 15th to April 15th.

Donal Kelly’s “Walking Edges” launches on March 15th from 6.30pm to 9.30pm and will showcase a selection Photography, Literature and Installations focused on the artist’s current practice.

“Walking Edges” is a photographic exploration of place and belonging drawn from hundreds of walks along Ireland’s Atlantic edgescapes. Accumulated over years, the slow hours spent in quiet spaces and the wait-inducing processes of analogue photography reflects the gradual depositing of geological and historical layers, and the ever shifting boundaries and transitions of restless coasts that refuse to sit still within the confines of a precise map.

Constrained to black and white in the square format, the work lingers on textures and interruptions suggesting something beyond themselves, grasping for a richer perspective, responding to a landscape crowded with ghosts, dented by the loves and losses of generations, marked by changes happening across different levels of time, from a tide or season, to the lifespans of a human, a tree, or a stone.

Curated by Outset Gallery Co-Director Tom McLean.
*Donal Kelly was the Winner of the Outset Gallery Showcase Award as part of OXO 2023 and was awarded a solo exhibition including production, curatorial & advertising support*

As part of Outset’s Education & Engagement program there will be a corresponding Artist Talk on March 30th & and Workshop on April 6th – more information announced soon.

Launch event runs from 18.30-21.30 with resident DJ @mitchpresents and complimentary refreshments from our sponsors. Get your FREE ticket now via the book here link.
