Artist Talk—Aideen Farrell

Time: 5.00pm Thursday 18th April 2019

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Admission free - All welcome - No booking required


Artist Aideen Farrell will give a talk on the materials, sources, and ideas contained within her current exhibition A Weight of Windows we are showing at Pallas until the 20th April 2019. The artist talk will be followed by Q & A, giving room for questions about the work throughout.

A Weight of Windows is an installation of fleeting urban forms; signs, banners, curtains, windows, and bollards. Objects and structures in this exhibition act as blocks in space, modular pieces of construction, and plans or models. This exhibition examines temporary and makeshift ways of claiming space. It attempts to fossilise these forms and examine the artist's own urge to build, arrange and demarcate spaces.

Aideen Farrell is a Dublin based installation artist. She is graduate of the National College of Art and Design with a degree in Fine Art Painting and Visual Culture. Upon graduating in 2017 she was awarded the Fire Station Graduate Sculpture Award and highly commended in the Visual arts category of the Undergraduate Awards. She recently completed a residency with Dublin City Arts Office at St Patrick’s Lodge. Exhibitions include Showroom, a solo show at the Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar, and Symbiosis, recent graduate show at the Catalyst Arts Centre in Belfast.
