Not Abel

Opening Saturday 12th May 7pm

Take Courage presents the first London exhibition of work by collective project Not Abel.

Utilising all available mediums ( painting, sculpture, sound / music, video, photography, performance, recontextualised detritus, etc... ) Not Abel re-evaluate and re-present particular cultural references. They are emphatically a collective project, maintaining an openness to the outside, their work both sucking in and leaking out into the external world, plugging into pre existing networks and spinning new webs of associations - practicing art as cartography of the collective unconscious, conjoining lines of force between ostensibly disparate sources and themes to generate fresh narratives and map occluded connections.

Not Abel ( b.1973 Limerick, 1986 Dublin, 2008 Cork ) Live and work in Cork and Dublin.
