Lucy McKenzie | Tour Donas

These books are selected by Pádraic E. Moore and Lucy McKenzie on the occasion of the exhibition Tour Donas at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

"The books selected here demonstrate McKenzie’s penchant for appropriating ‘popular’ or vernacular idioms from a variety of sources (such as trompe l’oeil painting or crime fiction) and incorporating them into her own oeuvre.

These books also highlight the importance of collaboration in McKenzie’s work and her desire to interrogate the hierarchies which have historically existed between various artforms." - Pádraic E. Moore, curator Tour Donas
