Fiona Kelly: The Dirt That Measures All Our Time | Friday 20 July  – Saturday 18 August 2018 | Mermaid Arts Centre
Opening Reception Thursday 19 July at 6pm

Fiona Kelly’s current practice is driven by a contemplation of what has been lost and the transience of things. Her visual outputs have been informed by the common material – dust. She uses dust both materially and theoretically, as a means to explore mans’ interaction with the built environment and the Natural world. Akin to the architectural movement of Bricolage, where the Bricoleur rebuilds using the debris of previous events; Kelly has foraged and utilised materials in a state of rejection to construct fables for the present.

Fiona Kelly holds a MA from the Crawford College of Art & Design and was awarded a 1:1 for her research thesis and accompanying exhibition The Distillation of Dust (2015). Her work has been exhibited in Ireland and internationally, most recently in The Great Heap, (Solo) The Luan Gallery & Leitrim Sculpture Centre; Sustainable Futures, Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh; The Dispersed Gallery, Middlesbrough, U.K; Geological Cake, The Burren College of Art & 126 Galway; I Went to the Woods, GLUCKSMAN, Cork; There are Thousands of Taps Dripping, (Solo) Ratamo Galleria, Jyväskylä, Finland.
