IADT graduates Ali Kemal Ali + Eimear Boyd exhibiting at dlr Lexicon for Culture Night 2019
Culture Night, September 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans to land on the moon. Two large-scale sculptures, "Moon" and "UFO" have landed at dlr Lexicon as part of a space-themed art installation that recalls the excitement and imagination of stargazers all over the world who watched 1969 moon landing.
“As a child one of my dreams was to visit the moon in my very own spaceship.” Artist, Ali Kemal Ali has a fascination with the potential for life to exist beyond our planet and makes art that asks us to have an open mind about what might be out there!
Ali Kemal Ali is a local sculptor who graduated from the Art BA programme at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dún Laoghaire in 2017. Since graduation Ali has exhibited at numerous festivals throughout Ireland including Electric Picnic, Gorey Festival, St. Patrick’s Day Parade and has participated in group exhibitions at Steambox Gallery, Dublin and Periphery Space, Gorey School of Art.
Eimear Boyd is a print graduate of the Art BA programme at the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dún Laoghaire, 2019. Working in the studio, Eimear experimented with a variety of different materials, from sawdust to orange peel, in order to examine their textural and material qualities. From this physical relationship to materials, Eimear has expanded her practice into sculpture. The collaboration with Ali in creating the Moon, has definitely presented a new and exciting set of challenges.
Moon is made from fiberglass, lights and is 150cm by 150cm by 150cm.
UFO is made from fiberglass, lights, sound and is 350cm by 350cm by 100cm.
