Mise en scène – Cecilia Danell and Eamon O’Kane

Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris

17th September – 31st October 2021
Centre Culturel Irlandais is delighted to present Mise en scène, a joint exhibition of paintings, drawings and sculptural works by Swedish artist Cecilia Danell, who is based in Ireland, and Denmark-based Irish artist Eamon O’Kane. Both explore encounters with landscape. Their approaches upend romantic notions of nature as untended wilderness by drawing attention to human activity, be it in the shape of decaying remnants, architectural constructions or treasured trees. Places become imbued with artifice in a dialectic relationship with the environment which these works represent in all their theatricality.
