Aideen Barry

the disjoined and the morphological

the disjoined and the morphological explored the contemporary and future creatures of Irish Gothic. Drawing, film, animation and objects featured in this gallery exhibition, which extended to a specially commissioned online animated work. Barry creates works that comment on the Gothic in the every day and a hypothetical evolution of the familiar into the absurd and obscene. Using this theme she explores the influence of hysteria in post Celtic Tiger Ireland.

Aideen Barry completed a residency at N.A.S.A. Kennedy Space Station where she underwent official astronaut training in zero gravity to create new work. This is the first stage of Barry's new work funded under the Arts Council of Ireland's New Work Award 2008-2009. The work examines current technology and space age advances.
