Linda Quinlan

16 October 16–22 December 2007

This exhibition hosted by the Crawford Art Gallery marks the occasion of Linda Quinlan as The AIB Prize recipient for 2006.

Quinlan’s installations create compelling narratives that navigate a diverse terrain of subject matter in a seemingly random fashion. These meandering manifestations articulate her preoccupation with the interconnectivity of objects and circumstances of her findings. Quinlan’s practice concerns itself with exploring concepts of exploration itself as well as considering the methodologies employed and circumstances of inquiry.

A significant development of present interests stems from a recent residency in Tasmania. On arrival she soon became engaged with the cultural and geographical significance of wilderness of the Island of Tasmania. Her observations led to inquiries and subjects of unresolved situations that resonate concerns with how we can recreate or interpret something that no longer exists.

A publication accompanying this exhibition will be launched in the Crawford Art Gallery on 23 November.
Texts will include an essay by writer and artist Sally O Reilly, a narrative by musician Cathal Coughlan and a fictional conversation between the artist and Dr. Eric Guiller.

The AIB Prize is one of Ireland’s leading arts awards. Every year it identifies a promising Irish visual artist and helps them launch their career. The award does this by providing financial support to an exhibition in a publicly funded venue to supplement exhibition costs and for the publication of a catalogue.
