29 June to 25 July 2020
Kate McElroy is an artist based in Cork city where she is completing a Masters in Art and Process at Crawford College of Art and Design. Kate received her BA in Ceramics from Limerick School of Art and Design in 2013 where she also incorporated video and performance into her work. Since then she has continued developing a varied, multi-media approach.
Kate’s art process is a multifaceted, layered process of enquiry integrating aspects of phenomenology, affect theory and the fluctuating world around her. Kate weaves together these different modes of questioning through a multimedia approach which evolves in an organic and fluid fashion.
She is interested in the invisible forces that shape and affect our actions. Space is an important component in her work and she combines photography, found materials and semi- transparent and transparent layers to evoke spatial complexity and to play with perception. She explores how these different components combine and interrelate to evoke subtle associations, and how this affects the viewer phenomenologically.
For her residency at Uillinn, Kate will play with her studio space, transforming it into an immersive environment.
Kate will be in the studio and welcomes conversation on her process.
21 - 25 July
Kate will set up an installation in studio, be on hand to discuss the work, and invite viewers to experience the work and respond using an open method of enquiry. Bookings available from 10.30 am to 4.00 pm.
