126 Artist-Run Gallery is delighted to present Reliquary of Beasts, a kaleidoscope of animal practices responding to the perceptions of value and animals in art now. Reliquary of Beasts responds to how we view animals in art and the newly diverging cross-boarder practices on animal products. 126 engages this exhibition now in order to spark a critical conversation now on humanities complicated relationship and moral positions to the animal kingdom, both as product and as art subject and material. Visual artists Christie Brown, Jo Kimmins, Rose Robson and Sarah Lundy will produce an exhibition of works of, by and from animals housed at 126 which is transformed into a reliquary of animal art for Galway International Arts Festival 2021.
