An exhibition and curated event with textiles by Gabriella Tagliapietra. Exhibition opening by Minister for the Arts, Gordon Ramsay, 6pm. Exhibition continues until Saturday 25th February.
As a passionate animal rights advocate Tagliapietra sees the subject matter of animal rights and ethics as limitless.
It can encompass domestic animals, factory farming, animal testing, live export, racing, hunting and the exploitation of animals in any way, shape or form.
By depicting the peace and tranquility of animals fortunate enough to exist in their natural environment – even if these are within urban backyards – Tagliapietra poses the belief that all animals deserve the right to exist, without experiencing harm or cruelty from humans.
..it was from interactions with nature from a young age that the great outdoors became a central part of my life. I am constantly seeking out places of unspoilt beauty to immerse myself in… I find great comfort in the solitude and majesty of such places and see an endless source of artistic inspiration in our native flora and fauna.
