Barry Flanagan reflects: "One merely causes things to reveal themselves to the sculptural awareness." Why the hares? "I find that the hare is a rich and expressive form that can carry the conventions of the cartoon and the attributes of the human into the animal world."

Barry Flanagan was born in North Wales in 1941. He studied at the Birmingham College of Art and Crafts and St Martin's School of Art, London. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions, both in Britain and internationally and in 1982 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale. A major retrospective of his work was held at the Fundación “la Caixa”, Madrid, in 1993, touring to the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Nantes, in 1994.

Flanagan lives and works in Dublin. This full-colour, illustrated catalogue of some 50 works accompanies the exhibition of 2006 and is a comprehensive survey of the work of highly-regarded Barry Flanagan. Essays by critic and art historian Bruce Arnold and writer and curator Mel Gooding, an interview between the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist and Barry Flanagan, and a foreword by Barbara Dawson, Director, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Enrique Juncosa provide illuminating comment on the artist's work.

The exhibition comprised installation works and bronze sculptures from the 1960s to the present, some of which were shown in the grounds of the Museum. Flanagan is best known for his dynamic, often monumental, bronze hares, which he began casting in 1979. His work is held in public collections worldwide and his bronze hares have been exhibited in many outdoor spaces, most notably on Park Avenue, New York, and at Grant Park, Chicago.
