IMMA Residency artist David Beattie invites you to studios 11 + 12 for a final opportunity to engage with the research and development of his studio practice during his residency at the museum. All are welcome to drop in from 4pm – 8pm. There is an informal presentation from 7pm – 8pm with Beattie and the IMMA25 Collective, followed by a short Q&A. Refreshments will be served.

Beattie’s sculptures combine sound, movement and physics to create unlikely alliances. His reapplication of domestic objects and technologies offers a fresh take of their function and allows a reinterpretation of these outmoded objects. David is an artist who is deeply interested in concepts around materialism and object-orientated philosophy spear-headed by Heidegger and Graham Harman. His art is situated between the scientific, the human and the spiritual.

David’s work has been widely exhibited both at home and abroad. Some of his recent solo exhibitions include, A Knowledge of Things Familiar, Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Contemporaries Guest Room at the Collective Gallery, Edinburgh, Old Light, New Darkness at The Mattress Factory Art Museum, Pittsburgh and The Weight of the Sky at the Mercer Union Centre for Contemporary Art, Toronto.
