About Michelle Moloney

Michelle Moloney is from West Cork. Her work seeks to answer questions that have accompanied her for much of her life.  These questions, often universal, are concerned with the human need to make meaning in our lives.  Two elements that emerge time and again throughout her work are stillness, and within the stillness, a question; the question often concerned with issues of difference, otherness, identity and grief.

Moloney’s recent work Lost is grounded her my experience of living with grief since the death of her daughter. It draws on the practice and language of photography to interrogate the concept of grief and confront its sanitisation in 21st century Western culture.  In essence, the work stands as a challenge to the notion of closure as a “tabula rasa”.

About Aoife Herrity

Aoife Herrity is an Irish photographic artist, educator and writer based in Dublin, Ireland. Her ongoing graduate series Sleeping Dogs Lie was selected as a PhotoIreland TLP Editions publication which will be published in 2020. Identity and its relationship to place and other people has long been a central focus of Herrity’s practice. Her work has been shown at a number of exhibitions nationally and is held in private collections in Ireland, Canada and the USA.

Seeking the emotional charge present in natural and built environments is a key strategy in her practice. Current areas of interest relate to converging narratives, implicit memory and the visualisation of insidious and sexual trauma.

Anthropology (MFA Graduate Degree Show)

"The works presented are universally human and deeply personal navigations of current climates and a response to exactly this moment in time.  The exhibition sits with the process of grief and walks along the borders of small towns and fallen cities. Artists reckon with the aftermath of abuse and make sense of fluctuating architecture and the human effort to heal our natural environment.  Perception is questioned and subverted to understand home, gender, and community. The work is steadfastly connected in rumination of our time and contemporary in the truest sense of the word."
