Things That Matter

Sophie Behal
Kilkenny Arts Office Gallery, Kilkenny, 2019

During my time as curator in residence in Kilkenny Arts Office Gallery I curated, Things That Matter, an exhibition of new works by Sophie Behal.

Things That Matter explores ways of measuring and defining time in relation to our everyday lives. Responding to the bells of St Canice’s Cathedral, the work explores the symbol of the bell as an object that can hold and amplify the properties of time. Its rhythm can come to create and define a space, a community, a life.

The exhibition was accompanied by a listening walk event which included a limited edition badge designed by Alison Fogarty.

Supported by Kilkenny County Council Arts Office, Creative Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland.
