PLASTIK Festival of Artists’ Moving Image collaborates with Temple Bar Gallery + Studios to present ‘Woodall’, an exhibition of recent work by Hilary Lloyd. The exhibition takes place as part of PLASTIK 2017, and will run from 11 February – 01 April 2017.
Following this event, a special preview of the Hilary Lloyd exhibition ‘Woodall’ will take place on from 6 to 8pm in Temple Bar Gallery. Both events are open to the public.
For Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Lloyd has constructed a multi-part installation in which film and sculptural elements are interwoven. Central to this installation is a group of new film works in which Lloyd continues to probe the architecture and ambiences of particular places. She integrates sounds and images in ways that challenge typical viewing conventions – sliding from interpretable scenes into ‘abstract’ formulations of colour, shape and light. Through a strategy of juxtaposition, Lloyd shifts between detachment and intimacy, abstraction and reality – offsetting psychedelic backdrops with casual observations of urban life. The films are integrated into a sculptural installation which includes printed fabric hangings, echoing and reframing the videos’ contents. Throughout the installation, the repetition of shapes and motifs provides a rhythmic quality to the work, connecting real-life visions with constructs of digital technology. Lloyd’s film works have a salient beauty and visual restraint, continually informed by an awareness of the mechanisms through which they are displayed.
