Bernadette Burns’ multimedia art practice focuses on memory and change, on how there are many strands and versions of a story rather than a single factual truth. The paintings, sculpture, audio, and artist’s books in this exhibition grew from a diary entry by her grandmother Tessie Burns referring to the shooting of Eileen, her younger sister. This exhibition explores family memory as a valid addition to the canon of history.

Bernadette is a painter who works with drawing, photography, sculpture, video and book making. Bernadette was a lecturer in Fine Art at the Dublin Institute of Technology for many years. She was one of the instigators of BA Visual Art, an innovative honours degree programme delivered by DIT on Sherkin Island. She has given up teaching in order to focus on her own art practice. She has exhibited her work in Ireland, Spain and Greece.
