Margaret O'Brien

'Circus, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre

'1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,....' takes the form of three wall mounted panels covered in patterned wallpaper. In a painstaking and labour intensive process, the artist has picked out areas of the pattern and highlighted them with the addition of thousands of pins. The piece plays with flatness and depth, oscillating between image and object, between integrated architectural element and independent artwork.

It vibrates, shimmers into our awareness, before dissolving back into its architectural surroundings.
