Eve Parnell: Let me sing dreams as words of truth

30 Jan-26 Feb. This exhibition of work by Irish artist Eve Parnell is inspired by the poem Vernehmt und lasst mich traum so wahrheit singen (Let me sing dreams as words of truth) by German Resistance hero Claus Schenk Graf von Stauffenberg who was executed for his role in an attempt to assassinate Hitler in 1944.

Peter Hoffmann, history professor at McGill University in Montreal and a leading authority on Stauffenberg, has written an introduction to Parnell's Berlin exhibition.

Hoffman finds parallels between the "dream-like compassion" in Parnell's delicate drawings of birds, plants and sculptures with the poem by Stauffenberg who "became a beacon of ideals in a world in turmoil."

Parnell is based in Dublin but holds regular exhibitions in other European capitals. She is known for her large-scale monochrome pencil drawings on tissue paper.
