MTU Crawford is delighted to announce the opening of the 2022 MA Art & Process exhibition. The show brings together a diverse range of media from moving image, painting, photography, and sculpture. The exhibition presents artworks from: Ava Hayes, Kiriko Hashimoto, Orla O'Byrne, Petrina Shortt, Sanda Gālina, and Shane Vaughan. This exhibition is an invitation to connect in an ever-changing environment. We each navigate times of unease from our own particular perspective. The work in this show speaks to our solitude as well as our togetherness. As artists, our materials and modes of making differ, but it’s in our attitude that we have found a common thread. We ask questions that are just beyond our grasp, push our materials beyond their intended purpose, and make work to communicate beyond words. In this beyond-space, we come together.

 

Know That I Am Also at Sea* refers to our individual journeys through the artistic process. Over the past year we have interrogated our practices; turning them over, shaking them out, discarding some elements and introducing others. There were times of uncertainty and doubt. We understood that this was an important time to float, to make, to be. While it was often a vulnerable place, we knew it was necessary to spend time here to allow the work to find its voice.

 

Our combined artistic research and processes explore public architecture, identity, natural materials, time, place and loss. Orla’s work is site responsive navigating personal experiences within the space of a public building. Shane uses digital technologies to construct and deconstruct concepts of identity; who are we and how do we become those people? Kiriko's relationship to wood honours this natural material as something precious and valuable. Petrina explores layered experiences of time, using a specific place to catalogue thousands of years of change. Through photography, Sanda dismantles the experience of many places into one moment to examine the feeling of displacement. Ava's performative paintings hide and reveal the facets of private and public; what we show, what we hide, what others take. The exhibition allows for reciprocal moments rather than an end point. The work will continue to evolve through engagement and connection. *title gratefully borrowed from the poem Altair Shines for my Beloved by Lucy Holmes

MA Art & Process is a 3 semester programme delivered from January to December, and part-time over 2 calendar years.  The concept of process is understood in a variety of ways: as material exploration and the engagement with medium and technique; as theoretical investigation and systems of enquiry without resolved or object-based endpoints; as innovative models of art distribution, including the possibilities of working outside traditional sites of art production and reception. Process also refers to the progression each student achieves over the course of the MA, which involves the observation, critique, deconstruction, documentation and rebuilding of individual practice. This programme is delivered in our Grand Parade campus in Cork city, Ireland. MA in Art & Process is currently open for applications for January 2023.
