This was the first one-person show in Ireland and the first solo museum show in Europe by Los Angeles based artist Peter Shelton, who was born in 1951. The exhibition presented a new monumental sculptural piece, entitled godspipes, which had been in progress for a number of years. It made reference to the body, and is comprised hundreds of translucent fibreglass and lead pipes resembling limbs, torsos and joints which were installed to articulate the rooms and corridors of the West Wing. A joint publication between the Henry Moore Sculpture Trust and the Irish Museum of Modern Art accompanied the exhibition : Price £5.95.
