EXHIBITING ARTIST: Kate Fahey, Artist in Residence

EXHIBITION OPENING: Friday 21st September 2018, 5pm-8pm


Exhibition Statement:

Working across the boundaries of various mediums Kate Fahey’s work explores our relationship with images through contemporary screen-based perspectives: aerial, satellite and elevated (drone's eye) views. Focusing on imagery predominantly appropriated from YouTube, Fahey is interested in verbal and visual falsehoods, broken images, ambiguity and half-truth. Employing such fictional devices she reimagines human presence in the military’s highly mediated and mystified representation of war, attempting to express the complex set of connections at play between bodies, aerial images, machines and the spectatorship of contemporary warfare online.
For this exhibition the artist worked with Sarah Barrett, Assistant Professor at the Discipline of Radiation Therapy, Trinity College, Dublin to generate phantom forms from radiological scans of artificial human bodies.
