SCULPTURE BY DAVIDE RIVALTA
Original sculptures by Italian artist Davide Rivalta are display in Dublin Castle and Lucan.
The exhibition, called Grazing in Lucan is a collaboration between Rome’s National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art and Dublin Castle.
Davide Rivalta creates life size animal sculptures using bronze, aluminium or fibre glass, and the animals are chosen by the artists to explore shapes and behaviours inherent to their nature.
Bronze buffalos are ‘grazing’ in the green park of Lucan House, the residence of the Ambassador of Italy in Ireland, while the courtyard square of Dublin Castle features a bronze lioness.
