The Irish Museum of Modern Art presents The weakened eye of day, a new project by Isabel Nolan. The exhibition explores how light manifests as a metaphor in thoughts, obsessions and pursuits and includes text, sculpture, drawings and textiles. Nolan’s works evolve out of consciously erratic investigations into the aesthetics of diverse fields such as cosmology, humoral theory and illuminated manuscripts.
The title is taken from Thomas Hardy’s poem “The Darkling Thrush” (1899), in which the sun, described as “the weakening eye of day,” is a dismal star drained of its force by a gloomy pre-centennial winter afternoon.
