Viewing Girls Girls Girls at Lismore Castle

Curated by the Irish fashion designer Simone Rocha, Lismore Castle’s summer show of works by female artists looks at the female gaze from multiple viewpoints, while also exploring femininity and its subversive characteristics across forms and media, including art, sculpture and photography. ‘I respond to work that documents but also transports the viewer to another place,’ says Rocha. ‘The female spirit and experience has been a strong focus of my work from the beginning.’

Works by Louise Bourgeois, Genieve Figgis and Cindy Sherman are shown alongside gorgeous pieces by Harley Weir, Francesca Woodman and Luo Yang. Not to be missed are the three whimsical paintings titled Wishful Self-Portrait by the brilliantly talented Sian Costello.

What strikes is the jaunty dialogue between the works on display. ‘I am interested in exploring how the works engage with each other,’ Rocha says, ‘as a thread of the natural world, uncanny self-portraiture or the sense of a haunting reality lingering just below the surface.’ We promise it merits the trip to County Waterford.
