Into the gravelly ground

Janine Davidson

Invitation to Exhibition Opening

Thursday, June 8th at 6pm
Mermaid Arts Centre

Mermaid Arts Centre is delighted to invite you to our exhibition opening on Thursday, June 8th from 6pm – 8pm.

At 6.15pm there will be a short gallery talk with Janine Davidson and Mermaid’s Artistic Director Niamh O’Donnell.Janine Davidson’s practice incorporates sculpture, installation, video and photography. The work is characterised by an interest in projection, framing and screening, through a consideration of the language of optics and seeing. This current body of work observes where artificial and natural worlds collide in an investigation of subterranean landscapes. Janine explores the manifestation of convergence through the projection and distortion of imagery to present a different view.  Her work is a transformative process that forms connections between the visible and invisible, the erasure and disclosure, the familiar and the unknown.

The changing contours of memory are of interest to Davidson, amplified by both context and sense of place.  Her work draws our attention to what we look at versus what we see, what memories we retain and what we discard, what is obscured and what is laid bare. How an image is framed affects our perception and understanding of how we engage with it. Site and the use of particular architectures both geological and manmade, retain shadows, memories and secrets, in her work we are invited to explore the gradations and balance of both illumination and shadows.
