As part of our Response Series, The Douglas Hyde is delighted to announce a Writer’s Response where writer and editor Anna Walsh will respond to the work of Jennifer Mehigan and her current exhibition in Gallery 2 as part of The Artist’s Eye programme.
The Douglas Hyde is delighted to present a commissioned solo exhibition by artist Jennifer Mehigan titled Nightbloom Chokehold. This exhibition is part of the ongoing series of solo exhibitions under the title The Artist’s Eye which asks those exhibiting in Gallery 1 to invite an artist of influence to present work in Gallery 2. Acknowledging the crucial role artists play in influencing and shaping other artistic practices, in this instalment Bassam Al-Sabah has invited artist and frequent collaborator Jennifer Mehigan.
Working across 3D modelling, sculpture, film, painting, scent, parties, and flower farming, Mehigan explores queerness and femininity across multiple spaces from fictional to historical and virtual to real.
