Rose Finn-Kelcey: Bureau de Change

Rose
Finn-Kelcey, Bureau de Change , 1987-2003, On loan from the Weltkunst
Collection
<> <> <> < /> In Bureau de Change British artist Rose Finn-Kelcey uses 12,400 coins to create an image of Van Goghs Sunflowers , which famously exceeded all previous records, when sold in 1987 for £24.5 million. The work is on long-term loan to the Museum as part of the Weltkunst Foundation Collection of British Art. For this updated version of the installation Finn-Kelcey uses euro and punt coinage to comment on recent changes in the Irish economy and currency, as well as the ephemeral nature of fame and the vagaries of the world art market. Ironically doubt has now been cast on the authenticity of that particular Sunflowers painting by Van Gogh, creating a whole new discussion about value in art.

An exhibition guide with an essay by critic and writer, Medb Ruane, accompanies the exhibition (price €3.00).
Please note that this exhibition will be open from Tuesday to Sunday 12noon - 5.30pm.
