About the work

A still as yet inchoate plan for a sculptural installation in the future.

About the artist:

Born 1979 Dublin, Aleana Egan lives and works in Dublin. Graduated from BA Hons. Painting, The Glasgow School of Art (2003).

“Aleana Egan creates abstract sculptures that are assembled in multi-layered constellations. Materials such as metal, wood, pigment, and fabric refer to their own properties, while also remaining indeterminate. In this ambiguity, the objects evoke immaterial moments—ideas, thoughts, feelings, moods, energies, and relationships both towards each other as well as interpersonal. Manifested in form, the internal is turned outwards. Translated into sculptural gestures, latent allusions are made visible, and the processual shifts into focus” – Melissa Canbaz, 2021

Egan’s works are held in public and public collections including The Irish Museum of Modern Art, The Dallas Museum of Art, Landesmusuem Münster and Frac des Pays de la Loire.

Selected solo exhibitions include Void, Derry (2022); Künstlerhaus Bremen (2021); New People, Konrad Fischer Gallery, Duesseldorf (2020); Shadowy Forms, NICC Vitrine, Brussels (2020); and Spitze, Farbvision, Berlin (2019). Selected group exhibitions include Yuugen, CCA Andratx (2021); The Classical Museum, University College, Dublin (2020); from narrow provinces, Cample Line, Thornhill (2019); staring forms, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin (2019); and Aleana Egan/Pearl Blauvelt, Mary Mary, Glasgow (2018).
