Abstract

Crystalline, a new exhibition showcasing the work of Irish artist Siobhán McDonald at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris, France, brings together works created from relics of past scientific ventures to the frozen north and materials developed for an upcoming exploration of the Sun. The items are recomposed into artistic pieces that convey a melancholic contemplation of human striving and its consequences and the haunting histories that science both creates and records.
