Tamara Henderson

Seasons End: More Than Suitcases

Through her writing, 16mm films, sculpture, paintings, and installations, Tamara Henderson transforms everyday objects into the otherworldly and fantastical, weaving through the anchors of waking life, the unconscious and spiritual realms. Seasons End: More Than Suitcases, her first solo exhibition in Ireland, gathers an ever-changing body of work centred on a cast of human-like figures dressed in colourful, embroidered robes; vessels of communication between different states of conscious and unconscious.

First developed during an artist’s residency at Scotland’s Hospitalfield (2015), Seasons End was presented in the Mitchell Library as part of the Glasgow International 2016, before travelling to REDCAT in Los Angeles as Seasons End: Panting Healer. A new landing and performance took place as part of the Serpentine Galleries’ Park Nights, and most recently was presented in Oakville Galleries, Ontario as Seasons End: Out of Body (2017); all captured in the 16mm film Seasons End: Out of Body (2018).
