Artist in Conversation: Isabel Nolan and Martin Herbert

Artist in Conversation: Isabel Nolan and Martin Herbert

This conversation between artist Isabel Nolan and art writer and critic Martin Herbert takes place on the occasion of Nolan's current solo exhibition 'Calling on Gravity' in the Douglas Hyde Gallery.

Comprising suspended and floor-based sculptures, portrait paintings, drawings, photographs and a rug, the show is made up of mostly new works which unsettle simple certainties such as up and down, high and low, through a material exploration of metaphor and how we bring the world into meaning.

Martin Herbert is a writer and critic living in Berlin. He is associate editor of ArtReview and writes for many international art journals. Recent publications include, Tell Them I Said No, (2016), The Uncertainty Principle (2014) and Mark Wallinger (2011).
