“Altered Environments” Kathleen O’Leary

March 29, 2017 – 6:28 pm | Comments Off

“Altered Environments” Kathleen O’Leary
Leitrim Sculpture Centre: Friday 31st March, 5-8pm

Refreshments served at 5 pm, Everybody welcome
Continues until Friday, 13th April 2017

Exhibition statement: ‘Altered Environments’, is an artist-in-residence exhibition that has been created through a montage of pre-recorded footage taken at music and arts festivals produced in Ireland and Spain during the past 12 years. The artist’s interest lies in how humans alter environments at such ‘living outdoor spaces’ and in turn, challenge fixed concepts of urban-rural ‘design’, and the dichotomies of nature and culture through collaborative action and critical pathways for autonomy and freedom.

Inspired by the writings of Architectural theorist Lucas “Rem” Koolhas the project reiterates the extent to which architectural space is no longer thinkable in terms of objectives, program and design and must be understood as an object capable of its own unplanned generative thinking and creativity. These sentiments are taken up by the artist’s own montage methodology in taking a situation and re-translating it into overlapping and multiple readings of conditions past and present.

O’Leary’s award-winning experimental film ‘Moveable Dimensions’, which is on show in the gallery, was made possible by two residencies in association with the Leitrim Sculpture Centre and Digital Arts Studios Belfast, Northern Ireland. The project also received support from the Arts and Disability Forum, Ireland and showed at the Duncairn Arts Centre and for Late Night Art with PS2 in Belfast 2017. The film will go on a European tour for the World Culture Festival in Mallorca, Spain, May 2017.

Artist’s Biography: O’Leary (b.1977) is an artist based in the North West of Ireland and a graduate of Art in the Contemporary World, MA, NCAD, Dublin 2013. As a visual artist, O’Leary’s artworks are multidisciplinary in nature that include drawing, film, photography and interactive media, sculpture, video installation. O’Leary directed a short ‘Second Sight | Site’ screened at Corona Fastnet Short International Film Festival in Schull, West Cork and was one of four artists chosen for LOCIS an EU project involving Ireland, Sweden and Poland at the Leitrim Sculpture Centre, 2013. In 2012 she was artist in residence for the Well-Beings Project, Leitrim, and took part in the symposium ‘Pathways to Practice’, at the Glucksman Gallery, UCC, with the Fire-Station Artist Studios, Dublin and ADI 2013. Her short ‘Seeds, Seeds, Seeds III, was screened for Culture Night with MART’s ‘We Wear Short Shorts’ at Riverside Studios, London, UK, 2012.
