This Peer Critique session is relevant to artists working in sculpture and installation. Following a presentation on her own work Janet will lead a Peer Critique with 6 interested artists. Artists participating will be asked to make short presentations on their practices a on future projects they would like to develop. After each presentation, Janet will facilitate a constructive and supportive discussion amongst the group. This peer discussion might focus on issues such as the direction of each participants work; materials employed and the intention of the works. It is intended the session will create dialogue and openness between artistic peers and foster networking and continued peer support amongst participants.
Janet Mullarney is a Dublin born sculptor who has spent a great deal of time working in Italy. “Her sculptures are a little like Angela Carter’s novels, where the everyday and the ordinary can suddenly plummet into the surreal and the mythic. Tables and stairs, trolleys and mattresses are the props that carry extraordinary characters. Subjects mined from the natural world and anthropo-morphized to play out human joy and human tragedy.” Patrick T.Murphy.
She has exhibited extensively in both Ireland and abroad and has held solo exhibitions at venues including Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane; the Royal Hibernian Academy; Crawford Municipal Gallery; Limerick City Gallery; Museo de Arte Contemporanea, Oaxaca, Mexico; Casa Masaccio Arte Contemporanea, San Giovanni Valdarno; Group exhibitions include “Views from an Island” Irish Contemporary Art from the Collection of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Millennium Art Museum, Beijing and Shanghai Art Museum; Palazzo delle Papesse, Siena; Palazzo Mediceo di Seravezza, Italy.
