The Hawk and The House is a two-person exhibition of photography, video, sculpture, drawing and installation by Anne Ffrench and Julia Pallone. Anne and Julia will present an Artists’ Talk in the Gallery.
Over the past two years, Anne Ffrench and Julia Pallone shared a studio at Uillinn over a three part residency, during which a new body of work has emerged. Their work shares a similar aesthetic and sensibilities and has developed around the notion of passage. The intangible passage of time for Anne, and a passage linked to geography and symbols for Julia. The work of both artists touches on the idea of archetypes: a primitive mental image inherited from the earliest human ancestors and supposed to be present in the collective unconscious. Also common in their practice is a love of materials; feather, clay, wool and milk are seen juxtaposed here in film, photography and physical objects. Materials are always on their way to becoming something else in an ongoing metamorphosis.
The Hawk and The House runs at Uillinn from Saturday 9 March to Wednesday 10 April.
