‘Re:New Wallace #7’ is the seventh in a series of collaborative cultural projects involving a Northern Irish artist and the Wallace Collection in London. This is an extraordinary collection encompassing paintings and decorative art objects collected from around the world by Sir Richard Wallace and his predecessors. The project provided a residency opportunity to visual artist Judith Waring to carry out research in response to the collection and create an innovative body of new work.

Judith Waring (b. Belfast) is a visual artist working with sculpture. She is interested in pushing boundaries with material, process, and scale. Her practice is research-led and project-focused. Visual markers of time, place and of boundaries are central concerns of her practice. The work is often site-or space-specific and informed by real and imagined narratives.

‘Quenched’ is a new body of new work is a distillation of ideas which began with Les Wallaces, the Rococo drinking fountains gifted to the people of Paris by Richard Wallace in 1872. In many ways, Lisburn, with its 2 extant fountains, is pivotal to the creative narrative between Paris and London. Les Wallaces are made of cast-iron, painted green and provide drinking water.

Please note, venue is closed Sunday and Monday.
