Altered Ground - An Exhibition of New Work by Dianne Whyte

Gallery, Level 3, dlr LexIcon
9 September to 27 November
Admission Free
Altered Ground is a new body of photographic work exploring landscapes undergoing extensive development within the local areas of Cherrywood, Lehaunstown, Carrickmines and Sandyford. Dianne Whyte looks at the transformation of these spaces, from new builds to the present ongoing alteration of the landscape. Through the use of experimental photographic techniques this work expresses an emotional reaction to a familiar environment that is undergoing profound change, concentrating on small details that would otherwise be overlooked.

Dianne Whyte is the 2022 recipient of the dlr Visual Art Commission funded by The Arts Council of Ireland.
