Matrix by Artist Przemyslaw Richter opens at Cork County Council’s LHQ Gallery

“Matrix”, an exhibition by Artist Przemyslaw Richter will open at Cork County Council’s LHQ Gallery on Friday, the 8th of September. The works explore the individual genetic patterns seen in human body parts with the support of biometric technology.

For this exhibition, Richter takes inspiration from Bruce Nauman's work Green Light Corridor, 1970, where he invites the audience to participate in the artwork allowing the audience to walk through a lit-up corridor. Richter’s series Identification takes over the gallery space, with projections on the two main walls. The placement of these projections forces the viewer to walk between them, interrupting the image and becoming part of the work. The interruption in the light, to Richter, is a scanning of the audience and replicates the scanning that is so commonplace in modern technology. 

“Matrix” runs from the 8th of September to the 20th of October 2023 at LHQ Gallery, County Library, Carrigrohane Road, Cork. An opening event will take place on the 7th of September, all are welcome. For further information, contact Cork County Council’s Arts office at
