Aleana Egan and Isabel Nolan, Material Flux

Aleana Egan and Isabel Nolans' forthcoming two-person exhibition Material Flux leans into the special character of Highlanes Gallery, which is in the former Drogheda Franciscan Church. The artists share an interest in using a broad array of media to create atmospheric, restless exhibitions often with roots in literary writing. This exhibition will nudge, play with and exploit the ways in which the site's religious architecture mediates encounters with matter and meaning.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a text by author, critic and former Frieze editor Jennifer Higgie, who will also appear in conversation with the artists on Wednesday 31 July.
