For her first solo exhibition in Ireland at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, guest curated by Linsey Young, Charlotte Prodger will present her recent Margaret Tait award winning work, Stoneymollan Trail. This feature length single-screen video revolves around the idea of screens and how they measure and mediate subjectivity. Comprising material from multiple formats that includes an archive of miniDV tapes that Prodger shot between 1999 and 2004, recent footage shot on her iPhone and HD camera, recorded voiceover and screenprinted graphic forms, Stoneymollan Trail traces a history of recent video formats as well as the artist’s personal history.
