Linenhall Arts Centre





Since 2008, Cléa van der Grijn’s work and practice is about unravelling the complexities associated around the culture of death, reconstructed memory and time. JUMP is a newly commissioned body of work about understanding the rational, social and emotional circumstances constructed around time and memory.  The exhibition consists of a series of new paintings by Cléa as well as an ambitious film work written and directed by Cléa and created with collaborators Joseph P. Hunt, Michael Cummins and Ciaran Carty.

A woman stands at the edge of a pier. She wilfully jumps.  Slowly she falls through water where time catches her breath. What are the memories between the transitional period of jumping and hitting the water when life becomes momentarily suspended?  Alive not dead. What memories to record?  Real or perceived? Fact or fiction?

Exhibition commissioned by Mermaid Arts Centre in partnership with five venues and funded through an Arts Council of Ireland Touring Award: Mermaid Arts Centre, Wicklow; Linenhall Arts Centre, Mayo; Courthouse Gallery, Clare; Solomon Gallery, Dublin; Hamilton Gallery, Sligo.

Gallery open Mon-Fri: 10am-5pm; Sat: 11am-5.30pm; Sun: closed
