We are pleased to announced Fiona Curran’s solo exhibition will be opening online from Saturday 17th April, with doors opening at the gallery on Thursday 20 May.
Jump Cut, Still Life will present a series of works exploring landscape and the impacts of screen-based technologies on our sensory engagement with the natural world. The works in the exhibition developed from the artist’s experience of being in her garden during lockdown, witnessing plants growing, observing insects and birds visiting and noticing the subtle changes in temperature and light. These works record Curran’s experience of slowing down and paying attention to the changing of the seasons whilst reflecting more broadly on notions of loss and change at a human and non-human scale.
