VISIT Visual Carlow, as Dublin-born artist Ali Kirby’s exhibition sticks around until Sunday 13 January. Ali creates sculptural assemblages and installations that physically respond to the built environment. Ordinary construction materials are re-purposed to create seemingly robust structures that reveal their fragility upon inspection. Concrete, plaster, soap and textiles often sit side by side in these sculptural arrangements that position themselves somewhere between interior and exterior space. This unique exhibition is sure to fascinate both child and adult alike. Awaken your creativity at VISUAL Carlow, this week. See www.visualcarlow.ie
