Following trips by bicycle around the Irish Midlands where I explored and documented the lesser known areas and have interviewed people living and working there, I have developed a series of etchings and edited audio for exhibition.

The aim of this body of work is to approach a dialect between a contemporary and an historical view of this part of Ireland. The project goes beyond topography to interweave history, folklore, , stories, memory, nature, natural history, in an attempt to record the patina and texture of place. It witnesses and records the changing landscape, traditions and attitudes.

 

Pamela de Brí
“I am an interdisciplinary artist currently working in printmaking, photography, painting and audio. My art practice explores and engages with the changing and evolving social and environmental landscape of Ireland. My work is project based: I focus on a particular aspect of society, research it, engage with relevant people and their stories, explore the location

Recent projects include:

  • exploring the leftover state of an 1845 shed in Broadstone using video, photography and audio;
  •  following by bicycle and documenting in photographs, notebooks, audio recordings and drawings, an old railway network across the midlands;
  • devising, coordinating and curating a year long 1916 commemorative project through printmaking involving 49 artists.”
