HIDDE VAN SEGGELEN Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition by Siobhán Hapaska (Belfast, 1963).
Hapaska’s oeuvre stretches over a period of twenty years and is marked
by rare originality and complexity. Hapaska appears to be working in a
broken landscape, retracing past events using faint memories, nurturing
unthinkable works as palimpsests. This post-Beuysian territory requires
re-tuning of our senses to recognize patterns evolved from her personal
and cultural developments whilst she uses juxtapositions of the
artificial and the natural, of sound and silence, and evocations of life
and death. Is this a guide to an impending future?
