in life (iii)

by Caoimhe Kilfeather

Medium: Black and white photograph

Dimensions: 60 x 90 cm

Price: €1800

This is one of a series of five photographs made for an exhibition ‘season and evening and weather and history’ at the Douglas Hyde Gallery in 2016. Shot at dawn in the grounds of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the photographs convey a time of liminality – an evocation of the ambivalence of dusk and dawn, the transitional hours between night and day.

Caoimhe Kilfeather is a visual artist based in Dublin. Her work is predominantly sculptural and often made in response to the memories and impressions of specific architectures and landscapes. Exhibitions can take the form of an environment or ‘new place’ which are sparsely appointed with carefully crafted objects. Recent solo exhibitions include Elemental at VISUAL, Carlow (2019), season and evening and weather and history, at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2017) and this attentive place at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin (2014).
