About this event

The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a commissioned solo exhibition by artist Bassam Al-Sabah in Gallery 1.

02 Dec 2022 - 05 March 2023, Wed - Sun.

In IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS, Al-Sabah transforms the gallery into a fantasy dreamscape embracing the shape shifting potential of computer animated worlds with a series of new sculptural works and a new CGI film at its centre. Al-Sabah builds a world in which selfhood and queer possibility intersect, where multiple intersectional “glitches” occur within the body, gender, within internal and external worlds and ever-present technology. These glitches, a form of discontent and unravelling, push and challenge preconceived narratives and habitual perceptions of masculinity, taking viewers through a spellbinding journey of metamorphosis and fluidity.
