Claire Murphy presents a photographic installation in the main gallery at South Tipperary Arts Centre, from an ongoing body of work that started during the pandemic, which also coincided with the period after the birth of her son.

She observes and documents the ordinary moments of her daily life, moments of contemplation, of inbetween-ness, all through the analogue medium of 35mm film. The photos taken at/around her family home, the home where the artist spent her childhood, exude a cinematic quality which conjures up unknowable narratives for us to ponder. The resulting images have a quiet stillness and are an intimate exploration of family, and of the pull home has on us and on our identity.

Originally from Cork, Claire graduated from a BA in Fine Art Painting at the National College of Art and Design in 2009. In 2015 she studied cinematography in BCFE specialising in 16mm film and film photography. She continued with her studies in cinematography at Napier University Edinburgh where she received her MA in 2018. Since completing her masters, Claire lived in Glasgow where she worked on a number of short films selected for numerous festivals and awards. During that time she had an active analogue photography practice which fed into her film making work. She is currently based in Cork and is a member of the Backwater Artist studio darkroom.

South Tipperary Arts Centre and Clonmel Junction Arts Festival are kindly supported by the Arts Council of Ireland and Tipperary County Council.
