As part of her exhibition at Pallas, Argentinian artist Florencia Caiazza has invited one of The Mothership project founders, artist and lecturer Seoidín O'Sullivan to join her in conversation to talk to and think about her work before and after having a child. She will discuss what her attentions are currently drawn to through this experience of becoming a mother and how she is thinking about materiality, touch, time and interruption in her new circumstances. The audience is invited to converse and discuss their own responses in relation to these themes. Children are welcome.

Biography

Niamh Hannaford and Tara Carroll are two colourful friends who have come together to produce art that is vibrant, energetic and celebratory. Individually, and together, they have interdisciplinary practices which encompass performance, print, sculpture, installation, textiles and painting. Their work complements each other, as there are a number of parallels within both their mediums and concepts. Ideas discussed in their work include femininity, community, Irish history and the self.

Tara Carroll is a visual artist based in Dublin. Her art practice is predominantly performance, which transcends into other mediums such as textiles, installation, video and photography. Her artwork explores the fetish as a metaphorically enigmatic intersection of religion, mythology and sexuality. Tara has exhibited and performed extensively throughout Ireland in galleries such as BCA Gallery, The Complex, Mart, 126 Galway, An Táin and RHA. She received the Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award from the Burren College of Art in 2019. She was also recently awarded a bursary from Kildare County Council to produce her new project 'Art as Pilgrimage'.

@greenandpurplevisualart

Niamh Hannaford is a visual artist based in Dublin. Her practice is rooted in self-reflection which she visualises through a combination of self portraiture, spoken word and object making. By documenting and publishing herself she has found others keen to share similar stories of doubt, fear, and joy. It is this sharing of experience, and thus, promotion of mental wellbeing that deeply interests her. She has exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally including the 189th RHA Annual Exhibition, The Art Market Budapest and the Fringe Festival. Niamh recently received funding from the Arts Council Professional Development Award.
