NATIONAL CRAFT GALLERY AND GAWAY ARTS FESTIVAL PRESENT
Modern Languages offers the perspectives of five international artists and designers with an interest in craft, its history and meaning. Nao Matsunaga, Laura Mays, Deirdre Nelson, Ciara Phillips and Barbara Ridland have sought to re–interpret the sometimes familiar, sometimes forgotten skills of Ireland’s craft tradition. In doing so they uncover fresh significance and meaning, offering new insights into the Irish vernacular.
