HAS BEEN MOVED FROM THE UPPER COURTYARD IN DUBLIN CASTLE
I am planning to visit Trim in County Meath over Christmas and today i needed to decide what equipment to bring with me. I had, more or less, decided to bring the Sigma DP1 Quattro and the DP3 cameras but they are very poor in low light and do not have GPS (a major issue) therefore I decided to test them this afternoon in order to decide if I should use them rather than my Canon 5DIII. As I used my Sony FX30 and the A7RIV last year I will not use them this year.
Original sculptures by Italian artist Davide Rivalta are ob 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.
