In Course of Rearrangement
January 24 - March 10 2019
Drawn to transitory aspects of site, Marielle MacLeman’s work explores the interconnection between place and our drive to create, collect, and understand, encompassing themes including land use, identity, and social mobility. Frequently transforming found or waste materials to evoke notions of the souvenir, she interrogates the limits of materials and their dialogue with narrative. Borrowing its title from museum lexicon, ‘In course of rearrangement’ is a playful exploration of our industrial and natural heritage, taking the changing fates of Ireland’s wool and silk weaving trades as a starting point.
