aemi online | NCAD Graduate Showcase 2021 Date/Time
Date(s) - 01/09/2021 - 14/09/2021





This unique edition of ‘aemi online’ offers a snapshot of new moving image work from graduating film and media artists whose practices merit further exposure, especially given the reduction of traditional public degree shows that in usual circumstances take place right across the country at the end of the academic year. This ‘aemi online’ showcase – of work by five artists graduating from NCAD’s BFA in Media – leads on from a discursive event with NCAD students about their work that aemi was grateful to be a part of earlier in the summer. The five works selected to screen on ‘aemi online’ stood out as particularly well suited to the specific demands of an online exhibition platform. Over the next ten weeks, a rolling showcase will take place here on this webpage with a new film work taking over from the last on a biweekly basis. Accompanying the films is a commissioned text by artist, art historian and NCAD graduate Frank Wasser who identifies the tensions explored by these artists between notions of representation, concealment and fabrication.

Tess Treacy
My work is currently centred on an examination of the ‘mundanity’ of common space in the built environment, on differing notions of what is important or necessary in urban planning, and the effect these abstract ideas have on people who live within these spaces. I use a variety of digital workflows and extended photography techniques to create my work. My most recent work has extensively used Generative Adversarial Networks, photogrammetry, and 3D videography. I’m inspired by Francis Bacon, Bruce Gilden, Holly Herndon, Carol Christian Poell, and military clothing and camouflage design.
