23 January 2012 | Mikala Dwyer is exhibiting in Ireland for the first time. Her work is on show at a multidisciplinary art space called Project Art Space in Dublin.

The exhibition
Panto Collapsar is a variation on Dwyer’s circular installations. She has placed a series of golden objects in a circle on the ground and above it suspended silver shapes as a kind of floating ceiling.

Speaking to
Visual Artists Ireland, Dwyer describes it as a “an exploded and bewitched house with a floating roof”.

The website also reports that Dwyer’s work is “increasingly relevant to a younger generation of artists who have emerged in Dublin in recent years”.

Panto Collapsar continues until 31 March 2012.
