Eleanor Duffin | More Often Lost Than Gained

Thursday 28th March – Saturday 8th June | during centre opening hours

Eleanor Duffin explores the subtle relationship between objects and humans. She questions why we are drawn to certain inanimate objects. Is there an immaterial force that connects us to these objects? In this period of history where we have become defined by what we consume or desire, the artist pares back visual elements that pique our visual senses.

Eleanor Duffin currently lives and works in Dublin. After graduating from Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA in Sculpture and Combined Media in 2003, she went on to complete a two-year Masters programme at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. She is currently an artist in residence at the Fire Station Artists Studio, Dublin and has recently been selected to participate, as International Artist in Residence, at Gertrude Contemporary in Melbourne for June and July 2013. Her work has been included most recently in Whitewashing the Moon, Project Arts Centre, Dublin (2012), Paper Visual Art, The Guesthouse, Cork (2012), We Out There, SIM, Reykjavik (2012), Radical Love II, Dublin (2011), Transference, Broadstone Gallery, Dublin (2011), and Little Constellation Archive, NUA: New Contemporary Arts and Research, The Republic of San Marino (ongoing).
