Phototropism brings together works by 10 contemporary photographers, each with a very distinct, diverse, and playful approach.
A new exhibition coming to The Library Project in Temple Bar, Phototropism, will see the works of the photographers displayed amongst a growing botanic display, that will evolve over the month-long installation.
According to the organisers, Phototropism is defined as “the unsentimental movement of plants towards a light source, we could understand Phototropism also as the result of a far more complex and instinctive decision, made in the search for one’s subsistence, and for all beings towards a common good”.
The exhibition features the works of Viviane Sassen, Ciaran Og Arnold, Miriam O’ Connor, Paul Gaffney, Jan Dirk Van Der Burg, Gerry Blake, Saskia Groneberg, Enda Bowe, Eoin Moylan, and Awoiska Van Der Molen.
The exhibition is supported by Dublin City Council and Temple Bar Cultural Trust, and is co-curated by Steven Maybury and Ángel Luis González Fernández. All made this possible with the help of Zioxla, Escape Garden Services, and many more.
Throughout the exhibition, the bookshop will offer a special selection of books like Strange Plant I and II, and magazines like The Plant.
Phototropism opens on 7th April at 6.30pm, and runs until 8th May at The Library Project.
