Artist Talk | Jaki Irvine – Behind the Scenes at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

17 April, 6.30 to 7.30pm

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to present artist Jaki Irvine who will show and talk about the works she has created during the course of her time working from a studio at TBG+S. This will include excerpts from her film Se Compra: Sin E(2014); Shot in Mexico: on the impossibility of imagining numbers of dead and disappeared (a photo-wall work for Deutsche Bank, Dublin, 2015); If the Ground Should Open – commissioned by the Irish Museum of Modern Art, (2016) and more.

Using video installation, photography, music composition and writing, she explores the complex ways we imagine ourselves and the world around us, a process which, for Irvine, has both philosophical and political implications.

Jaki Irvine lives and works in Dublin and Mexico City. Over two decades, she has built a substantial and highly acclaimed body of film and video art that is profoundly concerned with the limits of human knowledge and experience. Irvine’s engrossing, elliptical narratives are at times composed of fragments of everyday life – mundane incidents that, viewed via Irvine’s singular, assiduously selective gaze, become occasions of heightened strangeness.
