The Hugh Lane will present an exhibition of new work by Belgian artist Sven Augustijnen.

Cuirfear taispeántas de shaothar nua leis an ealaíontóir as an mBeilg, Sven Augustijnen, i láthair i nDánlann Hugh Lane.

Augustijnen's films, publications and installations focus on political, historical and social themes, often challenging the conventions of documentary. They reflect a wider interest in history and the nature of storytelling. 

The Arms of Freedom is Augustijnen’s storyboard installation for The Hugh Lane’s 2016 programme. An allusion to the light automatic rifle - the F.A.L manufactured by Fabrique Nationale de Herstal in Belgium, it was the most distributed weapon in non communist countries throughout the Cold War and earned a moniker as the "right arm of the free world”.

This compelling installation includes a display of TIME and LIFE magazines as well as RTÉ archival material, which evokes just how both weapons and journalism have been entangled in the fabric of our histories.

See the exhibition at The Hugh Lane, Dublin from 8th September 2016 - 22nd January 2017.

Díríonn na scannáin, na foilseacháin agus na suiteálacha de chuid Augustijnen ar théamaí polaitiúla, stairiúla agus sóisialta, agus is minic a chuirtear in aghaidh ghnásanna na gclár faisnéise. Léiríonn siad suim mhór sa stair agus i nádúr na scéalaíochta. 

Suiteáil clár scéalta Augustijnen is ea The Arms of Freedom le haghaidh chlár 2016 Dhánlann Hugh Lane. Agus é ina thagairt don raidhfil uathoibríoch éadrom – an F.A.L. – arna déanamh ag Fabrique Nationale de Herstal sa Bheilg, ba í an t-arm ba mhó a dháiltí i dtíortha neamhchumannacha i rith an Chogaidh Fhuair í agus thuill sí an leasainm “lámh dheas an domhain shaoir”.

Áirítear sa tsuiteáil iontach seo taispeántas de na hirisí TIME agus LIFE mar aon le hábhair chartlainne RTÉ, a chuireann i gcuimhne dúinn an dóigh a bhfuil airm agus an iriseoireacht fite fuaite ina chéile i gcreatlach ár staire.

Is féidir an taispeántas a fheiceáil i nDánlann Hugh Lane, Baile Átha Cliath idir an 8 Meán Fómhair 2016 agus an 22 Eanáir 2017.
