Opening Thursday 4 February 6pm

The absence of the necessity of being occupied is a solo exhibition of paintings by Elisa Feiritéar. Feiritéar is the winner of the CIT Registrar’s Prize.

“This body of work explores the paradox of leisure in society, from Aristotle’s theory that leisure is ‘the absence of the necessity of being occupied’ to contemporary times where leisure is affected by cross-cultural factors and so many other evolving trends. Through painting, which ironically in itself is a leisure activity to some, the work examines leisure as a state of being in today’s world.”

Opening Hours: 10am – 5pm, Monday – Friday
