Ok, let’s try this one more time, Laura Fitzgerald’s work is about,
Place a bid on the final field and hold your breath as you enter your 1:1. Yer man has become fossilised down in the local pub. “No, that’s a woman.” She’s been there for 24 years, cemented to the same spot. Handy though, because you can hoover around her and the meter reading is relatively low.
Please proceed as normal. Turn off the light, don’t be wasting electricity. Everything is ok. If you are feeling disappointed, please report it to the HR Department. They’ve changed offices again, due to flooding – head on up the garden path, they have a snazzy new set up there. Any plans for the weekend? In the co-working space, we are eating, come join us.
Laura Fitzgerald presents a new body in her debut solo exhibition in Clare, including works on wood, an installation at Davorens bar on Ennistymon’s Main Street, and a performative talk with an newly written experimental text (see excerpt above).
With humour, insight and occasional absurdity, Fitzgerald examines the human condition at its most raw. Her anthropomorphised stones engage in everyday, mundane, activities. Yet a stone can also “[…] be submerged, half-submerged, it can rocket through the air like a scud missile or a meteorite”.
The artist, herself stone-like, tells their stories.
