'Redressing Redressing' is the first solo presentation of work by Renèe Helèna Browne. The exhibition develops from a found photograph depicting a classical stone carving dating from the fourth century BC. Discovered in a book titled ‘Aphrodite’s Tortoise: The Veiled Woman of Ancient Greece’ (2003) by Dr. Lloyd Llewellyn-Jones, the photograph illustrates the object having had significant facial damage to the center of the face resulting in it now lacking a nose. Browne reconstructs this missing anatomical part, reimagining its capabilities through gestures in sculpture, sound, smell, and drawing.

Tara McKeon (b.1991 Longford) is an Irish visual artist who works mainly through video, painting and exhibition making. Over the past four years McKeon and Browne have worked to actively support and critically reflect on each other's practices, both independently of and through exhibitions, writing, and research projects. Most recently, they performed together as part of Glitter Hole’s ‘Fianna Fellatio Party’, a military-daddy choreographed drag routine at Yestival 2017. Other endeavours together include banner, t-shirt and furniture making.

 

Outhouse is a community and resource centre for LGBT people, their families and friends. It is based in central Dublin. Its primary goal is to offer a safe space for people to inform, meet, organise and make things happen. Outhouse is very often the first point of contact for people into the LGBT world and also the place in which lots of groups and organisations have been established.
