    Rugby Ball is part of a series of works featuring cow hides and udders by Irish artist Dorothy Cross. Exploring notions of history and philosophy, and the complicated interaction between genders, this edition was created to coincide with her 2005 major retrospective at IMMA


    Born in Cork in 1956, Dorothy Cross is one of the most respected artists working internationally today. Over the past few years she has devoted increasing amounts of time to the development of large-scale public events and projects, most memorably the IMMA-commissioned, Nissan Art Project, Ghost Ship, an ethereally illuminated light-ship which haunted Dublin Bay for a number of weeks in 1998. Cross has participated in numerous group shows internationally including the 1993 Venice Biennial where she represented Ireland; the 1997 Istanbul Biennial and the 1998 Liverpool Biennial. She also took part in the ground-breaking 1994 exhibition Bad Girls in the ICA, London, and the CCA, Glasgow; the 1998 exhibition Mirror Images: Women, Surrealism and Self Representation, which was shown at MIT List Art Center, Boston; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; and the San Francisco MOMA
