Glass House Stone

Glass House Stone is an exhibition of work by international artists exploring things as propositions and possibilities rather than as only objects of interrogation or information. Set within the glazed geometries of the Health Sciences Building at UCD, the art works test the limitations of object-oriented thought. The exhibition questions the search for singular essentialised truth in objects and artefacts and whether such propositions can ever be captured and encased. In the context of the World Archaeological Congress, this exhibition posits whether archaeology, just as art, is a system of negotiable propositions whose strength lies not in any essence but in the fascination and enthusiasm of humans to engage with and mediate things in order to render our world intelligible.
