In Light of the Lamp
The Douglas Hyde presents the latest instalment of its ongoing series of temporary artistic interventions within Trinity College. For this Gallery 3 Project, we have invited Hannah Fitz to create a new installation in one of the lecture rooms in the Arts Building. The artist will subtly transform this very ordinary teaching environment and use the existing furniture and architectural features of the room as the backdrop for a new video work to be screened.
The video is an animated collage that focuses on the characteristics of objects that are typically encountered in a still life display. An actor, Isadora Epstein, attempts to be included in the imagery by interrupting the scene with her presence. This action highlights how familiar everyday items begin to be perceived differently, and take on an alternative character and physicality, when affected by human or artistic influences..
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
