Eleanor Duffin, Caoimhe Kilfeather, Barbara Knezevic: Duality of Form
In conversation: the show’s curator Mary Cremin discusses Duality of Form with participating artists Eleanor Duffin, Caoimhe Kilfeather and Barbara Knezevic on opening night, followed by wine reception.
Duality of form is a philosophical inquiry into the nature of objects and how their meaning comes into being. The artists explore the subtle relationships between the material and the immaterial through sculpture, photography, drawing and text.
Caoimhe Kilfeather’s photographic work looks at the properties of a defunct object that reflects outmoded practices as well as form and aperture. Her interest in architecture is means to explore façade and everyday spaces that we inhabit. Her sculptural work delineates space and outlines a boundary that alludes to drawing and perhaps a space that objects are contained.
Barbara Knezevic through her sculptural pieces traces possible meanings that are trapped in material objects that conspire to elude us through their presence and absence. The interconnectivity between the pieces allows us to decode possible interpretations of the works.
Eleanor Duffin creates a fictive space; using text and graphic images she creates a narrative that explores parallels universes and allows for a manifestation of imagined sculptures that will be exhibited with an accompanying text.
Their sensitivity to materials is both poetic and intangible in terms of how the work translates meaning to the viewer and also how the work responds to the architecture and flow of the gallery space.
