Venue: Wandesford Quay Gallery




Bricks in the Rain is a bewitching and incredibly beautiful display of ceramic sculpture, archive, film and sound.

Irish ceramic artists undertook a 5-week residency at Fule International Ceramic Art Museum in China where they created artworks, using local materials and facilities. Their creations were installed at the museum in China which was an extraordinary
opportunity for the group and for the profile of Irish Ceramic Art. Now back in Ireland, they have created a body of new work, responding to the residency.

The group includes some of Ireland’s foremost ceramic artists. They shared studio space with 3 dynamic Swiss artists in China, and so invited them to also be part of ‘Bricks in the Rain’. Their combined artworks respond to and reflect the extraordinary and international flavour of the residency. Journalist and writer Eleanor Flegg accompanied them to China, and working with sound-maker Declan Ó Cualáin and film-maker Andrew Standen-Raz has combined archival interviews, film and sound
recordings which add a truly creative twist within the show.

The curator Hilary Morley, has endeavoured to marry this unique combination of media into an unforgettable Irish/Chinese cultural experience.
