Emma Zukovic, an artist and filmmaker, was born in Lymington, England, and is now based in the west of Ireland. The artist’s mother is of Irish nationality and her father is from Macedonia. Since receiving a BA in Fine Art Printmaking and Contemporary Practice in Limerick School of Art and Design, Zukovic has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally including Russia, Italy and Canada and has received awards for her efforts.
The artists work is concerned with her ties and affinity towards her mixed heritage and her subsequent cultural identity and ‘Parallel Familiars’ addresses that. Zukovic works with a multitude of mediums to portray defining landscapes from both Ireland and Macedonia including film, installation, printmaking and drawing.
Burt Pidgin is an emerging artist currently based in Dublin at La ’Cathedral Studios. His work is primarily based in the figure and implements sculptural form and mixed media painting and drawing.
