Andrew Kearney’s Mechanism presents a theatrically-framed constellation with trajectories and ellipses weaving between cardinal points in the Centre Culturel Irlandais’ architectural design and history: between the courtyard and the historical communal buildings housing the old library with its extraordinary collection of philosophical and theological texts and medieval manuscripts;

between the allée couverte and the internal gallery space, and ultimately between the constellation itself and the world ‘outside’ which is enticed into this new artistic universe through a dramatically hung silver and transparent veil over the entrance arch.
