6 October to 2 November
Opening Thursday 5 October, 6pm
Conor McFeely lives and works in Derry. His work incorporates a wide range of processes, from the ready-made to sculpture and installation, as well as photography, video and audio.
Multi-layered fracturing and manipulation of materials serves to find new relationships, referencing twentieth-century global political history, Northern Ireland’s troubled legacies and landscapes in the second half of the twentieth century.
His exhibition at QSS, titled Pioneer, points to episodes of altered states in relation to religious rapture and sexual ecstasy, as well as drug-induced experiences and interruptions of consciousness. The work is driven by McFeely’s ruminations on the nature of individual free will, choice and autonomy.
