RE-ENGAGE

Project 1 of the micro GALLERY Open Call Series 2021

by CCAD Alumni - Pauline Gibbons and Catherine Murray

 

Project Statement

Many aspects of our way of life at present has inspired this work. Our world is rapidly changing, and our trust now lies with science and hope for the future. The use of scientific and organic materials alludes to nature and the principals found within it, as well as within the human body. The work will explore the transparency and delicacy of the materials, which link a beginning and end achieved by the translucency of tubes and the filtering of light. It brings to light the interconnected systems that keep our environment in order.

Through the intricate combination of objects, the work references the use of scientific materials which become vessels for the organic. The piece strives to re-engage the senses using containers of information. These objects are created for a specific purpose. They have meaning and significance only within that context. They are created with aesthetic considerations, with a strong emphasis on craftsmanship.

 

microGALLERY 

Developed by MTU Gallery at 46 Grand Parade as an experimental project space, the first series of projects was open to CCAD graduates through an Open Call. Installations are viewed only through the window on Grand Parade, and through online elements. This offers a supported opportunity for graduate and emerging artists to publicly share and develop work responding to the site, in the heart of Cork City centre.
