Perspectives: Where is Irish Art Now? with Dorothy Cross

Perspectives is a series of talks exploring one question or idea from the point of view of different artists, writers, critics and curators.

Artist Dorothy Cross (Cork, 1956) came to widespread attention when she began a series of works featuring cow skins and cow udders. In her art she amalgamates found and constructed objects. These assemblages invariably have the effect of reinvigorating the lives of everyd ay things, sometimes humorous, sometimes disturbing, always intellectually stimulating and physically arresting. Her most recent work employs the revelatory and voyeuristic traits of video and photography, combining these with sculptural work, to play with what is at risk, on hold, erotic and curious.

Perspectives is a series of talks exploring one question or idea from the point of view of different artists, writers, critics and curators. The current series invites artists to discuss their relationship to Ireland and Irish art history in their individual practices. Perspectives: Where is Irish Art Now? has been developed in conjunction with the exhibition From Highwood to Home: Highlights from a Private Collection, and is generously supported by Cork Institute of Technology / Crawford College of Art & Design.
