10 Minutes of Art Tour and Laura Skehan Exhibition – FUTURE DISTANT MEMORY CALLS
10 MINUTES OF ART
Curator Naomi Draper will host a 10 minute tour of Laura Skehan’s exhibition FUTURE DISANT MEMORY CALLS, specifically developed for non-visual art audiences evenings to help you navigate your way around the exhibition.
FUTURE DISTANT MEMORY CALLS-LAURA SKEHAN
A Future Distant Memory Calls is an exhibition of video, sound and sculpture, an installation suspending the viewer in a space with extracted moments of time, using a variety of media, motifs, and devices to analyse how agriculture, architecture, colonialism, extraction and the quest for knowledge have been elemental to climate breakdown. The work will illustrate the push/pull dynamism of human and non-human entities, of nature and technology and of culture and science, highlighting these challenges by exploring modes of display and motifs of containment, control and utility.
Laura Skehan is an artist from Dublin. Her practice focuses on the relationship between human and non-humans entities in the built environmental and natural landscape, prompting phenomenological and philosophical questions about the human condition. Working predominantly in moving image, sound and sculpture installation, she explores how human centric behaviours and technologies impose on the balance and harmony of this relationship.
Gallery Open until 9pm on Culture Night.
