The Lewis Glucksman Gallery in collaboration with the Irish Architecture Foundation, presents “of de Blacam and Meagher”, an exhibition of Ireland’s participation in the 12th International Architecture Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, from 15 April to 22 May 2011

The exhibition is a published reproduction of the archive of de Blacam and Meagher Architects, presented on specially designed oak pallets. In this exhibition, the audience is a participant, they are invited to remove a volume from each stack, roll it or fold it and take it away. Over time the stacks will be depleted, until finally we are left only with the furniture. Eventually, the archive will, in essence, be consumed. Originally presented in the Oratory of St.Gallo, Venice in 2010, the exhibition has been reconfigured to respond to the architecture of the Lewis Glucksman Gallery, before continuing its tour to Limerick City Gallery and Ormeau Baths Gallery, Belfast
