About this event

Doireann Ní Ghrioghair‘s sculptural work takes its lead from the architectural heritage of cities. Through examining the materiality, history and aesthetics of buildings and monuments, her work aims to probe at the embodied values in these forms and the psychological and physical consequences of architecture for the individual in the city. Architectural landmarks in the built environment often act as societal introjections, bestowing inherited values onto their denizens. She sees them as sets of ideological markers around which we twine the fictions of our contemporary lives. Ní Ghrioghair graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art & Design, London in 2010. She completed a long term residency at Fire Station Artist Studios, Dublin from 2014-17. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Pallas Projects, Dublin; MART Gallery, Dublin; Platform Arts, Belfast; and Eight Gallery, Dublin; and notable group exhibitions include shows at CCA Derry-Londonderry; Klimaweschel–MKH Biennale, Germany; Thames Side Gallery, London; Adobe Backroom Gallery, San Francisco; TULCA, Galway; and Eva International, Limerick. She was selected four times to exhibit at Creekside Open, APT Gallery, London, and she recently completed a residency in the School of Architecture & Engineering, UCD as part of Parity Studio.

Accompanying the Glucksman's 2021 exhibition Home: Being and belonging in contemporary Ireland, this series of online artist talks invites participating artists to discuss their practices. These talks are free and will take place throughout the duration of Home.
