‘Tierpark’ is a solo exhibition of new works by Aoife Layton at Cork Printmakers’ Print Showroom.
‘Tierpark’ means zoo and refers specifically to the panoramic displays of animals separated by moats rather than bars at Hagenbeck’s Tierpark in Hamburg from 1863. The works included reflect various scenic and pictorial tropes relating to the animal as ornament or exhibit. The core works in Tierpark are meditations on systems of collection and display expressed through the visual language of the picturesque, as it appears in photographic and theatrical backdrops. This exhibition features mezzotints and oils on paper.
