exhibition critiques ‘Free World’ Politics
15th August 2004, the Chambers Gallery is housing the preview of Faye
Briony’s debut exhibition ‘The Trial of Tartuffe’, which
runs until 31st August 2004.
Inspired by Molière’s Tartuffe, Briony’s provocative
debut exhibition highlights the contemporary relevance of Molière’s
central theme of pious hypocracy. In a vibrant mix of acrylic, oil and
pastels, the exhibition features a series of paintings that investigate
the double standards in ‘Free World’ politics, drawing attention
to issues such as the trial-less detention of inmates at Guantanamo Bay.
Other exhibits include a selection of Briony’s figurative work and
portraits of Dublin Singer-Songwriters Paddy Casey and Declan O’Rourke.
This summer Preview event takes place 5.00 – 8.00pm at the Chambers
Gallery and includes refreshments and acoustic guitar/ mandolin (Chris
Frewin and Rob Charlton).
‘The Trial of Tartuffe’ exhibition runs 16 – 31 August,
