When art and nature connect: UCC's latest exhibition - Irish Examiner - Barbara Knezevic - David Beattie

The latest exhibition at the Glucksman in UCC is themed around the concept of circadian rhythms, writes Ellie O’Byrne

Outside the Glucksman, in the grounds of UCC, a curious clock is on display. 

The minute hand and hour hand progress in the usual fashion, and keep time accurately, but it may take a while for an observer to realise that they’re looking at a video: An aerial view of two figures, ceaselessly sweeping the lines of debris that form the clock’s hands into their new positions. They’re keeping time with their endless work.

This is a video installation called the Sweeper’s Clock, by Dutch artist Maarten Baas. Inside the museum, the other pieces of art in the current exhibition all have a similar theme. All are chosen with the express purpose of making us consider a curious miracle of nature that governs all life on earth.

From plants to bacteria to people, all organisms are intrinsically linked to Earth’s daily 24-hour cycle,rhythmic patterns of activity known as circadian rhythms.

Dublin-based sculptor Barbara Knezevic’s large installation may at first seem static but is laden with reminders of the passage of time; plants live and die, giant candle sculptures slowly burn for the duration of the exhibition, and sea water evaporates in her piece, Exquisite Tempo Sector.

and it was raining out of a low sky is the second iteration of Paul Hallahan and Lee Welch’s two-person exhibition of recent paintings. These works look to Utopia and the end of perceived history, adopting very different approaches to the theme. They pose questions as to how we see the world and include a combination of abstracted landscapes and figurative based paintings. The exhibition also includes a collaboration work the artists jointly made for the exhibition.
