Intrusions - 2022

Walls: A sequence of three large Jacquard tapestries conjure a sense of theatrical disorientation. Translated to Jacquard from loose digital collage, the imagery depicts scenes of architectural ruination where excavated Irish landscapes converge with remnants of damaged cityscapes. The vertiginous amalgam-environments that result are populated by a cast of extinct or endangered animals.

Floor: Three blocks of raw quarried limestone interrupt the space; each block is punctuated by a series of cast bronze snail shells, positioned inside crevices on the rock's surface. A single electron valve is suspended from invisible thread to hang 4 inches above each block; it appears to the eye to levitate over the centre of the rock.
