Dunamaise Arts Centre
Jan 19th – Feb 28 2025

Ciara Buckley and David Delaney are delighted to announce the forthcoming exhibition at Dunamaise Arts Centre in Portlaoise. 12 is an innovative visual art installation which delves deep into the complexities of addiction and the journey to recovery, employing the symbolic power of the number 12.

Through interactive exhibits inspired by the number (e.g. steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12 hours on a clock, 12 astrological signs and more) the artists craft a multifaceted narrative that explores the myriad facets of addiction and the many paths to healing.
“We want to create a dialogue around recovery, addiction and its many layers, using layers of creativity to engage the participant. The installation will be interactive and multimedia encouraging storytelling inspired by what’s seen and heard and we’d love to hear from you”
