Join us at END OF THE LINE for the opening of ‘Inherent Agitations’ a solo exhibition by glass artist Aoife Soden Glass.
Interpreting human conditions through sculpted, blown and cast glasswork, this exquisite collection of intricate works chronicles Aoife’s exploration of the link between mind and body - with a focus on the dysfunction of internal organs as the result of stress and anxiety.
Creating a series of ornate glass body organs, Aoife highlights the issues surrounding mental health, stress and anxiety and the difficulty we have in identifying and describing these symptoms in today’s fast-paced modern society. The organs are juxtaposed with colourful nautical elements such as anchors and buoys that reference everyday phrases and jargon used to describe the symptoms.
Inspiration for her sculptures is drawn from medical references, physical objects and common language, and Aoife has created these works using a number of glass practices including blowing, sand-casting, lampworking, pate de vare, and various cold glass techniques.
