Sculptor Katrina Palmer will introduce her work, ‘The three stories are flattened’ this weekend as her exhibition opens at Void gallery on Patrick Street in Derry.
Curated by Maolíosa Boyle and Jonathan Cummins, the show opens on Saturday evening (July 16).
A spokesperson for the Void said: “Palmer is an artist who is changing our understanding of sculpture. For her, writing is making, and sculpture is a process of investigation employing language and story.
“Books are central to her practice –The Dark Object (2010), The Fabricator’s Tale (2014), End Matter (2015)– and the worlds she creates on the page are often revisited in her exhibitions through live readings, site-specific recordings, and constructed environments.
“Within her exhibitions Palmer employs installed audio recordings using her own voice, images and found objects. Visceral, violent, sensual, humorous and melodramatic, Palmer’s narratives collide fiction, history and the everyday to construct unsettling environments that examine bodily presence, absences, memorial and death.
“Her dematerialized worlds blur fact and fiction, conjuring associations in the minds of her readers, listeners and viewers that take on an almost material form.”
At Void, Palmer will exhibit ‘Reality Flickers’ from 6.30pm on Saturday, along with ‘The Fabricator’s Tale’ (Blood- Bespattered Table) and ‘Now Landscape’ a new work produced for Void.
