Ailbhe Ní Bhriain’s new film installation brings together a number of unlikely locations in a meditation on themes of heritage, loss and imperial legacy. Drawing on early museological texts and defined by the extensive use of CGI, the work considers the constructs and absences underpinning cultural and historical representation.
Ailbhe Ní Bhriain is an Irish artist known for her use of video montage. She creates immersive multi-screen installations that combine film, computer generated imagery and sound. The work has been exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and involves collaboration with musicians and composers, with screenings and installations incorporating recorded sound, live performance and improvisation. Ailbhe is represented by Domobaal Gallery, London and lectures at the Crawford College of Art & Design, Cork.
Ailbhe Ní Bhriain is supported by a Visual Arts Project Award from the Arts Council of Ireland, 2017.
