Sculpture in Context 2014

The Sculpture in Context exhibition is on at the Dublin Botanic Gardens now, until October 17th.
I quite enjoy wandering about the Botanic Gardens any day of the year, but really enjoy keeping an eye out for the sculptures - especially the almost-hidden ones on a stroll through the garden. 

Of course, the textile works have an extra special place in my heart.

I managed to wander through the Palm House when the sprinkler system had just been switched on. The beautiful light  on a sunny day was worth the soaking.

I'm hoping to make another leisurely trip around the gardens before the exhibition closes, as I've only seen a fraction of the works on display.
