Mary FitzGerald in Conversation with Sarah Glennie
Date: December 10, 2015
Green On Red Gallery, Park Lane, Spencer Dock, Dublin 1.
Sarah Glennie, Director of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, will engage in
conversation with Mary FitzGerald on the occasion of her exhibition ‘STILL” in
the Green On Red Gallery.
Mary FitzGerald’s solo exhibition, which runs until 12th December 2015 at the
new gallery space in Spencer Dock, Dublin, is the artist’s most ambitious to
date. The use of live video projection, reflective materials, oil on canvas, photo
collage and half-hidden installation details constantly question and shift the
viewer’s perception of time and space. The exhibition represents at once a
very personal journey, peppered with fine and refined references to East and
West, and a philosophical coming to terms with the here and now. Few have
brought these opposites together with such cool sensibility.
Mary FitzGerald has exhibited widely in Ireland and internationally. Her work
is represented in all national collections and in many private and corporate
collections around the world. In 1990 she was elected a member of Aosdána.
Sarah Glennie, formerly the Director of the Irish Film Institute and the Artistic
Director of the Model Arts Centre, has written numerous texts on the work of
Irish and international artists and has been a force for innovative curatorship
and fresh critical thinking in contemporary Ireland.
Paul Rosser ( DIT ) will make a short performance work in the gallery at 2pm
using drawings and musical score by John Cage as instruction.
