RACHEL JOYNT Artist Talk
Tuesday, 15 June
7 – 8.30 pm
“For me, a successful public artwork needs to have a sense of place, a freshness, some intrigue & playfulness, a bit like a frozen moment from a daydream.” Rachel Joynt
For this session, Rachel invites to see and discuss her work, bringing together ArtNetdlr artists for this online presentation and discussion, and Q&A session.
Rachel’s work is predominantly site-specific; this goes for both her sand installations and public artworks. Her installations include ‘Selene’ at Project Art Centre in ’93 and ‘Feed’ at Temple Bar Galleries in ’99. Her public artworks include ‘People’s Island”88, ‘Mothership’ at Dunlaoghaire seafront in ’99, ‘Starboard’ alongside the River Lagan, Belfast, 2001 and ‘Noah’s Egg’ outside the Vetinary building, UCD, 2004.
Working in both gallery and public art, permanence and the transient are reoccurring themes, her use of sand, light, glass, bronze and cast iron underline this. The actual material itself can play an integral part in the concept as in her series of recent pieces using a thin screen of sand to examine a stratified landscape, scan or graph.
