Gemma Fitzpatrick and Lisa Freeman: All Our Future Conversations
‘Last year’s words, belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice.’
– T.S Eliot, Four Quartets
126 Artist-Run Gallery closes out a successful year with ‘All Our Future Conversations’, a dual exhibition by emerging artists, Gemma Fitzpatrick and Lisa Freeman. The exhibition is the result of the gallery’s 2015 curatorial Internship programme.
Through the media of sculpture and video, respectively, Fitzpatrick and Freeman explore the theme of language and the future of communication.
Gemma Fitzpatrick’s work is produced through comparative analysis of statistics and personal information from the experiences of two female sources and a child. Through this process, similarities and disparities between both sources are revealed and explored. The resultant irregular and colourful geometric forms are a striking illustration of things taken for granted, continuous interruptions and events overlooked in the everyday.
Lisa Freeman presents ‘Falling Not Flattening’. Using Derrida’s, ‘The Parergon’ as a foundation, Freeman’s video investigates the subjectivity inherent in our navigations of the world. In this exploration of perception she attempts to highlight the space between the moment before and after communication to question how we perceive these gaps that exist in human experience and explore how we give meaning to this.
All Our Future Conversations Exhbiton Co-Curated by the 126 interns; Brendan Finnerty, Bláithín Hughes, Cliodhna Timoney and Ellen Egan.
Wine for the evening has kindly been provided by Woodberry’s of Middle Street. (We’ll be cooking up some delicious cocktails too!)
