Mediation Residencies

Residencies December 2007 - February 2008

Michelle Browne

During her time in South County Dublin artist Michelle Browne will explore the changing face of the county. Looking at how architecture and urban planning have changed the physicality of the area, she will take her starting point from the Dublin mountains, looking across the county and documenting these changes. Michelle will devise mini interventions in response to this research, while also linking in with various interest groups in the county.

Michelle Browne is an artist and curator based in Dublin. Her practice fundamentally explores how we engage with our environment and the people around us. She is interested in the way the design of our environment and the social structures that are put in place impact on the way we live. Her practice looks at the frisson that is created in our engagement with the world. Michelle is the founder of OUT OF SITE, a festival of live art in public space. She has a BA in Fine Art Sculpture and History of Art from the National College of Art and Design, Dublin and a Postgraduate Diploma in Arts Administration From University College Dublin. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally, most recently taking part in Documenta Urbana, Kassel, 'On the Road to Europe', Berlin and TULCA 07 in Galway. She is the recipient of the NCAD Student Prize and The RDS James White Art Award 2006. For more information go to http://www.michellebrowne.net/

Barbara Nealon

Barbara Nealon will begin her research by meeting the In Context artists and talking to them about their process. Exploring and gaining knowledge of their working practice in terms of both their theoretical and practical approach. Her curiosity will most likely be focused upon how initial responses to a site become manifest through their particular media. She is curious as to how their choice of media dictates how they engage with a site or whether the opposite is true. She is curious about how time spent in the site is used especially for the international artists

Barbara Nealon graduated from NCAD in 2004, she has engaged in a variety of activities under the umbrella of public art. She has just participated in Finding Portlaoise 2007,and in Laois Artists Symposium in 2005, in the grounds of Emo Court. In 2006 she collaborated with Tara Kennedy in Transplant, a temporary installation of 627 Christmas Trees on Sandymount Strand in Dublin that were removed after 3 tidal cycles. She participated in The Vending Machine Project, Dublin Fringe Festival, 2006.

She is part of a trio of artists called vaginal vinyl (Nealon, Tara Kennedy and Jennie Moran) who have performed extensively in Ireland and the UK performances involve music, props, costumes and site specific responses. The group has performed in Hotel Ballymun and The Personality Cafe (Dublin Fringe Festival) this year and again in the Fringe 2006, Out of Site, Kilkenny arts Festival 2006 and AB art space, Galway 2005. They also produced two interactive art projects for Leixlip and Maynooth libraries earlier this year called Lovely Room and Words Escape Us. Nealon will be participating as an invited artist in The Big Store, the annual end of year show in Temple Bar Gallery and Studios.
