Residency Dates: July 31st-August 29th. The work will be open to the public from, August 14th-29th

Preview evening Thursday, August 13th (6-8pm).

We are delighted to announce that Richard Forrest will be the first ArtBox Process Residency artist. Richard will be resident in the gallery space for the month of August, and will create a unique site-specific installation for the gallery; documenting his process as the work evolves. Once complete, the work will be open to the public.

Richard Forrest, is a visual artist based in Dublin. Forrest’s practice combines sculpture, new media and painting to explore ideas of perception and technology as a mediator of human experience. His work investigates the world that we know through our senses and the world which we comprehend with our mind. His work often reflects an interest in the virtual, systems, optics and fragmentation of form. He graduated in 2011 from Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork and has exhibited in numerous group shows and galleries including: The Black Mariah, Cork, Catalyst Arts Centre, Belfast, Tactic Gallery, Cork, Occupy Space, Limerick, SOMA Contemporary, Waterford and The Crawford Art Gallery, Cork.

ArtBox Process, is an initiative that sees an artist occupy the gallery space for a one month period. During this time they can experiment; trialling new configurations and materials, using the gallery as template. The chosen artist will document their process as they go via the ArtBox website, and ArtBox will invite Curators (visiting and internal) to visit the space and interact with the event.
