126, Artist run gallery is pleased to announce that local artist Marie Hannon will be undertaking a unique new residency in 126’s Queen Street gallery space during March and April.

For this time the space will be treated as an artists studio in which the artist will create new work. The project will culminate in the exhibition of this new work during the final week. The space will be open to the public during normal gallery hours for the duration of the project, and we would encourage members of the public to visit, to observe and converse with the artist at work. We hope that this will foster an environment where the public can engage with and gain a greater insight in to the contemporary creative process.

Marie Hannon graduated from G.M.I.T in 2010 with a First Class honors degree in sculpture. Her practice is primarily concerned with the environment that defines who we are as a society. Themes of the domestic, displacement, confinement, struggle and the damage of silence are frequent in her work. Marie works mainly in object manipulation, drawing and photography.
