KUSTERA PROJECTS presents SLIVER, a site-specific exhibition of multidisciplinary new works by Irish artist Catherine Owens.

The show brings together a series of triptych paintings on canvas, backed with LED lighting and immersed in a 360° audio soundscape. A set of exquisitely painted tall canvases illuminate the gallery space, suggesting transitions of time and experience through color, light and sound. As the light in the room changes, slivers of audio are heard, weaving together fragments of sound that document a migrant’s journey, the majestic song of the Dawn Chorus and elements of music by noted Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy .

SLIVER, in collaboration with Grammy award winning sound engineer Kevin Killen, 1212 Design Studio and Arup, will deliver moments of illumination that when experienced together form the push and the pull of the hope found in each new day.

Influenced by the light works of James Turrell and Dan Flavin, the minimalist color field paintings of Ellsworth Kelly as well as the performance works of Laurie Anderson, Catherine Owens’ exhibition is transitional, marking time and space through the transient nature of shifting colors and sound.

Owens has exhibited works at the Feldman Gallery, New York, Morris Healy Gallery, New York, Yokohama Museum of Art, Japan, the Kerlin Gallery and the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin, Ireland. She was Creative Director of visual content for the band U2 on five World Tours, and in collaboration with the band was the Director and a Producer of the seminal 3D film ‘U23D’ in 2008. As an award-winning artist at the forefront of digital technology, her work has allowed her to develop a sophisticated language, combining her studio practice with advancements in new technologies.
