Landscape Contortion is an exhibition of new work by Dublin-based artist David Lunney. He uses drawing, sculpture, photography and performance to explore our perception of landscape and our surroundings. In Landscape Contortion Lunney will bring his various artistic processes to bear on a new environment; The Boyne Valley. 

In some ways Landscape Contortion will be something of a sequel to Things made for drawing (2016, Eight Gallery, Dublin). In that show Lunney used The Dublin Mountains as a "guerilla sculpture garden" to create innovative and unique landscape artworks, neither realistic nor abstract. For this show in Drogheda, the artist hopes to develop these existing processes and capture the rich history and culture of the region.

The Exhibition will be launched by Dr. Peter Harbison, author of the book Treasures of the Boyne Valley (published by the Boyne Valley Honey Company) and Honorary Academic Editor of the Royal Irish Academy on Thurs 17 August at 7:30pm.
