The Blind Elephant Collective are a group of artists from different disciplines, focusing on themed projects. A central part of their artwork is their blog, “Blind Elephant Illustration Collective”. They choose a particular statement of theme each month and publish images on the blog accordingly. The theme of the current project in the Cultúrlann is a reinterpretation of quotations from a wide range of painters and writers. The exhibition in the Gerald Dillon Gallery continues until Thursday, 23 February.
