Episode Three is an exploration of the work of visual artist Isabel Nolan, with particular emphasis on the making of her latest exhibition, A Delicate Bond Which is Also a Gap, at Solstice Arts Centre in Navan.
Isabel has an expansive practice incorporating sculpture, painting, textile work, photography, writing and works on paper, driven by a restless inquisitiveness and a burning intelligence. For this episode Dónal takes a deep dive into her recently published book of artwork and essays Curling Up With Reality, before focusing on the inspiration and methodology behind her latest show.
The opening chapter of this episode was recorded on the nearby Hill of Tara, a suitable portal into an intriguing world of contemporary art.
Isabel’s work is included in public collections such as: Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Tate, London; The Hugh Lane Gallery, Ireland and Salama bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation, Abu Dhabi. Isabel has shown her work all over the world and she represented Ireland at the 51st Venice Biennale as part of a group exhibition in 2005. In late 2020 Launchpad and Kerlin Gallery published a survey of the last 10 years of Nolan’s work which includes over 20 of the artist’s writings.
We Are The Makers is written and presented by Irish broadcaster Dónal Dineen and produced and edited by Ian Cudmore. Original music by Ultan O’Brien.
Commissioned by Solas Nua in Washington, D.C., bringing contemporary Irish art to U.S. audiences.
