Submerged in Echoes – to 25 May

Submerged in Echoes by Emma Berkery


Cultúrlann Mc Adam Ó Fiaich is delighted to present a new virtual exhibition, Submerged in Echoes by artist Emma Berkery. Associate artist with the organisation for the last number of years, Emma presents an exhibition of new work developed and created in An Cultúrlann itself. Immersed within the life and language of the building, the artist produced works in a variety of media reflecting her experiences during this time. Works include abstract paintings, and text based screen prints. Challenging both artist and viewer, many of the paintings are produced with a limited palette and suggest both physical and psychological spaces.

Artist, Emma Berkery stated,

‘I love being part of the rich life and language of the visual arts in An Chultúrlann, and I am delighted to showcase a little of what I have been creating here in this exhibition.’

Dr Suzanne Lyle, Head of Visual Arts, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, commented:

“Congratulations to visual artist Emma Berkery and Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich in developing this wonderful new exhibition which can be explored online from the safety and comfort of our homes. It’s incredibly heartening to see that whilst we await the re-opening of our galleries, theatres and venues, artists are continuing to bring great art to all, inspiring us at a time when people are turning to the arts for comfort more than ever. I would encourage everyone to get online and experience this terrific new exhibition.”
