Jennifer Brady

The View From Here
November 6th until November 21st

For Tulca 2010, 126 presents The View From Here, an exhibition of Brady’s new video works exploring the everyday spaces we inhabit from radical and fantastical perspectives, varying from conspiracy theory, gaming culture to virtual landscapes. The works themselves address notions of place, using narrative devices, voiceover and soundtracking elements with which to re-imagine these spaces such as the city, the suburban park and computer gaming landscapes. The exhibition seeks to revise and destabilise the ways in which we perceive these familiar sites.

Jennifer Brady’s practice involves video and sound installation. Her video works fuse documentary and fictive modes of production, with particular emphasis given to the element of storytelling within them. The stories she tells through her video works are based on research into both real and fictive events. This material is often used to construct narratives which in turn explore such notions of reality and fiction.

She is currently completing a M.A in Visual Arts Practice (IADT). Selected recent exhibitions include Public Gesture: Pirate Capital, The Lab, Dublin 2010; Flicks: The Cinematic in Art curated by Cliodhna Shaffrey, Drogheda (2009), Sounds Like Art curated by Carissa Farrell, DraĆ­ocht (2009) and the Claremorris Open Exhibition (2007) where she was a prizewinner. She was commissioned to produce new video work for multi media event Snakes and Ladders (Dublin, Wexford and New York), curated by composer Daniel Figgis (2009). Her work has also been purchased for the Bank of Ireland Art Collection.
