‘The Books We Haven’t Read’

Cork County Council’s Library Head Quarter Gallery is excited to present ‘The Books We Haven’t Read’ a solo exhibition by Elize de Beer. The exhibition, which includes a series of screenprints, a large-scale paper tapestry and artist’s books, presents the idea that there is more power to the books we have not yet read than the ones we have. 

Elize, a printmaker, book artist and sculptor, has been strongly influenced by her dyslexia. Her fascination with written language has made her consider books as objects with immense power.

The exhibition will be opened by Aoibhie Mc Carthy, Director of Sample Studios on Thursday the 11th of January at 6pm, and will run until the 16th of February 2024. 

Elize will host a zine making workshop on the 13th of February from 12 to 2pm, where attendees will learn how to make their own zine from idea to distribution. The workshop is open to all ages. Spaces are limited, so booking is required, to book a place email arts@corkcoco.ie
