Chris Doris; The Empty Field

×The Model is temporarily closed to the public in line with official advice regarding the control of Covid 19. We plan to reopen to the public as soon as it is possible. In the meantime, all of our artistic programming has been suspended.

×Please follow the advice of the HSE regarding the control of Covid 19 which can be found here https://www2.hse.ie/coronavirus/

The Model welcomes the work of Chris Doris, a unique and personally intimate gallery experience which draws on the artist’s distinctive synthesis of practices in psychotherapy, art, meditation and other forms of interoception. Expansive ‘Open Paintings’, text paintings and works on steel and paper evoke the empty ground of being, and the conditioned nature of self. Doris’ practical research into the nature of consciousness, being and selfhood also informs what he calls ‘inquiries’ - durational, participatory setups, often in public contexts, which import skilled processes of observation from therapy and meditation into an art context.

Opening / Songs of Being Seen
Sat. 17 Nov., 3 - 6pm followed by a drinks reception.

A participatory inquiry utilising spontaneous group vocalisation. The work employs skilled modes of observation derived from mindfulness, psychotherapy and interpersonal neurobiology. Members of the public are invited to join the group of singers throughout the event.
