Ark: Suzanne Van der Lingen
18th May 2011 - 23rd May 2011
Opening reception Wednesday 18, 6-8pm.
Open daily 12-6pm.
Film screening and talk Thursday 19, 7pm sharp.
Using a combination of her own recordings, family documents and public archive film, Suzanne van der Lingen draws parallels between the different ways in which experience is attempted to be preserved through stories, objects and documents. The resulting values attached to these artifacts are as much a product of time as they are of personal signification.
By weaving together religious stories and her own family history, her work attempts to expose the situatedness of temporal perception rather than a universal historical truth. The work on show includes a video piece entitled ARK, a photographic series called La Nostalgie des Origines, and an accompanying publication.
This show will be accompanied by a film screening on Thurs 19th, followed by a talk with the artist and documentary film maker Tadhg O’Sullivan. The discussion will be chaired by Francis Halsall.
Thurs 19th 7pm sharp.
Suzanne van der Lingen recently graduated from the National College of Art and Design with a BA Honours Fine Art Media in 2010. She was selected by the Joinery as part of their recent graduate programme. Her writing has been published by Circa, GUP Magazine and Paper Visual Art amongst others.
