The Grand Scheme

At The LAB, Foley St, Dublin 1

Until January 10th, 2015


____The LAB Gallery, working in collaboration with The Molesworth Gallery, is pleased to present The Grand Scheme, an exhibition of new work by Vera Klute. The exhibition features kinetic sculptures, a 5m high video projection, tapestries and drawings.

____Klute’s work looks at how we perceive the outside world as subjective agents, presenting the individual as displaced in his or her own habitat. Like a natural scientist, Klute seeks to make sense of an often absurd daily life with its cycles, routines and rituals. The work looks at the body as well as the environment to disentangle physical and social relationships.
____She strives to break down the nature of everyday life into its constituent parts: the challenge of governing the physical body through an independent mind and interpreting the outside world while navigating a complex social environment. The boundaries between science and imagination become blurred in an attempt to give meaning to an existentialist chaos. The world is not seen as an objective, collectively-perceived reality, but rather a manifestation of the individual’s disposition.

____Born in Germany, Vera Klute lives and works in Dublin. Since graduating in fine art from IADT in 2006 with a first-class honours degree, she’s had solo exhibitions at the RHA Ashford Gallery (2014), the Butler Gallery, Kilkenny (2011), the Wexford Arts Centre (2009), and The Lab, Dublin (2006). She has shown in group exhibitions at the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid, at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin and was selected for FUTURES 2011 at the RHA. Her portrait of Sr. Stanislaus Kennedy, commissioned by The National Gallery of Ireland, was added to the National Portrait Collection in 2014. She received the Arts Council Bursary Award in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2013, the K+M Evans Award at the RHA Annual (2013) and the Emerging Visual Artist Award, Wexford Arts Centre (2009).
