Studio 3 & Off Site
29 March to 19 June 2021
Kate McElroy is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Cork City. She received a first class honours masters degree from Crawford College of Art and Design (2021) and she is a member of Sample Studios.
Coalescing a sense of space and time, Kate’s work combines photography, found objects, recordings and installation. Presenting a type of ‘altered lens’ she presents an ambiguous space, offering the opportunity to consider our sense of perception and how we encounter our everyday interactions with our surroundings.
She captures an environment in process, transit and slow transformation highlighting a betweenness, where definitive boundaries dissolve. Her work pushes towards the edge of abstraction, creating a space that invites the viewer in to recreate and move beyond the visible.
Through presenting layered aspects of interstitial areas, she opens a gap, to reconsider our positioning in an interlinked, transforming ecology.
She will hold an ‘Open Studio Exhibition’ 19 June to 10 July.
