LAUNCH OF ‘INTO THE LIGHT’ – ARTIST BOOK AND EXHIBITION BY CORINA DUYN AT LISMORE LIBRARY

cover-with-sleeve-sample-216x300Dutch artist Corina Duyn began her creative life after moving to Ireland in 1990. From 1998 her work has focused on exploring her chronic illness through art and writing. After publishing three works and several exhibitions Corina has now produced Into the Light a limited edition Artist Book-in-a-wooden-box. Each loose sheet has a short reflection on life with chronic illness/disability, although its wisdoms are also applicable to many of life’s challenges. Fear, hope, acceptance, society’s attitudes, the power of creativity and moments of gratitude are all explored. Her work is currently in collections in Ireland, Europe and America.

Launched on the night by Padraig Naughton, Director of Arts & Disability Ireland and MCd by Textile Artist and Mindfulness Teacher Pascale De Coninck. Groups are invited to book an illustrated talk with Corina, via littlewings@corinaduyn.com.

Open on Thursday the 24th September at 7pm and runs until 15th October. All welcome. The library is wheelchair accessible.

The project was supported by the Rehab Visual and Performing Arts Fund, and through the Waterford Council Arts Publishing Fund.
