CCA Derry~Londonderry presents two solo exhibitions by Roisín McGuigan (NI) and Ieva Kotryna Ski (LT), participants in the third iteration of the biennial Reciprocal Residency programme, a partnership between CCA, Lithuanian Culture Institute and Kaunas Artists’ House. The exhibitions feature new work by the artists following their participation in the residency programme.

The exhibition faults and folds presents mostly new works by Ieva Kotryna Ski that consist of video, prints and installation. During her stay in CCA Ieva Kotryna embarked on the journey through Northern Ireland landscape looking for geological dykes. In the exhibition her ongoing interest in these igneous intrusions and geological processes intertwines with the threads that appear along the way.

Faults in geology are fractures between two blocks of rock in the Earth’s crust, which allow formation of oceans and continental drifts. But here faults can also refer to defects, broken camera or faulted eyesight. Local stories and parallel narratives stitch into the folds of rocks. Insubstantiality of matter refers as much to our own fragile state as to a brittle layer of the visual perception.
