Ailbhe Ní Bhriain: Interval Two (Dream Pool)
Ailbhe Ní Bhriain is an Irish artist working with film, computer generated imagery, collage, tapestry, print and installation. Ní Bhriain’s work is rooted in an exploration of imperial legacy, human displacement and the Anthropocene. These intertwined subjects are approached through an associative use of narrative and a painstakingly crafted visual language that verges on the surreal. She sidesteps directive positions and familiar binaries, exposing instead the layers of ambiguity and contradiction embedded in these fraught issues. The resulting worlds she creates are at once idiosyncratic, irresistible and deeply unsettling. Her work has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and regularly involves collaboration with musicians and composers.
Ailbhe Ní Bhriain’s work has been shown widely, with exhibitions including Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin; Broad Museum, Michigan; Whitechapel Gallery, London; Gagosian-Deitch Projects, Miami; CCA, Glasgow; IMMA, Dublin; Hammer Museum, LA; Istanbul Modern, Istanbul; Reina Sofia Museum, Madrid and the 16th Lyon Biennale. Public collections of her work include MAC Lyon; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork; Trinity College Dublin; The Arts Council of Ireland; and Office of Public Works, Ireland.
Current and upcoming exhibitions include Ground State – Fellowship Within the Uncanny, Lagos Photo Festival, Nigeria; Following Threads, Crawford Art Gallery, Ireland; Les Formes de la Ruine, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, France; Heaven Can Wait, Innsbruck International Biennial, Austria; Lismore Castle Arts, Ireland (solo); and An Experiment with Time, Kunsthal Gent, Belgium (all 2023/24).
