12 July 2004

Molière-inspired exhibition critiques ‘Free World’ Politics

On Sunday 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, 10.00 – 7.00pm daily, at the Chambers Gallery, Long Lane , London. Admittance: Free. For more information, and directions to the Chambers Gallery, please visit

The Trial of Tartuffe is a set of paintings which exposes and satirises our present political situation. It is an exhibition inspired in part by 17th century French writer, Molière and also by the lyrics of Neil Young. The paintings are a mixture of beauty and irony with an underlying poignancy.
