June 2012.

Running in tandem with Dublin’s Science Gallery exhibition, “Surface Tension” at EYEBEAM, in New York, was a momentary installation by artist, Nicole McKenna. The artwork “iReign” consisted of a solitary rain-splashed yellow raincoat suspended on a coat hook at the entrance to the exhibition. The temporal nature of this artwork, further enhanced its existence. Its fleeting occupation, permitted (real) rain drops to gather and collect within the gallery space, only to disappear in time.

iReign occupied a tactical position at the entrance to a show concerned with “water’s physical properties, its role in politics and economics, and ways in which it may be harnessed, cleaned, and distributed…

The artist presents us with a timely reminder of just precious our water resources are.
