AND FEATURING THREE ACCLAIMED MAKERS:

 

ANN HAMILTON   USA   Ann Hamilton is a visual artist internationally recognized for her large-scale multimedia installations, public projects, print media and performance collaborations. Responsive to the contingencies of the sites where she works – cloth, texts spoken and written, animals, and people suspended or in motion – the qualities of these spaces, objects, and their atmospheres evoke an awareness of the site and the scale of the body to ask how, in a technologically extended world, the literacies of the hand and embodied knowledge  cultivate attention in a hyper distracted world of information

Hamilton received a BFA in textile design from the University of Kansas in 1979 and an MFA in sculpture from the Yale School of Art in 1985.  She has been the recipient of the National Medal of the Arts, Heinz Award, MacArthur Fellowship, and the Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship. She represented the United States in the 1991 Sao Paulo Bienal, the 1999 Venice Biennale. 

 

 

ISMINI SAMANIDI  GREECE/UK  Ismini Samanidi was born in Athens and studied in London at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art. She now lives and works on the South Coast of England. 
Her work has been exhibited internationally with solo shows in the UK and US and was included in the Most Real Thing at the New Art Center (UK), the Hangzhou Triennial of Fiber Art (China) and Le Fil des possibles at L’Espace De L'Art Concret (France). Her work is in the permanent collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. She was the first weaver to be invited as artist in residence at the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation. Ismini is an associate lecturer at Central Saint Martins.

EILIS O’CONNELL  IRELAND  Eilis O’Connell is one of Ireland's most internationally recognised contemporary sculptors.  Born in Derry, she studied sculpture at the Crawford School of Art, Cork and the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, and was subsequently granted research fellowships at The British School at Rome and P.S.I. in New York. She has represented Ireland and Britain at the Venice,Paris, and São Paolo Biennales and her small sculptures were shown at the Guggenheim Museum in Venice. In 2018 her series of outdoor sculptures were exhibited at E1027, the world-renowned home designed by the Irish architect & furniture designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976) in Cap Martin, France. O'Connell's work can be found in numerous high profile public locations in London (Canary Wharf, London Docklands Development Corporation), Cardiff, Newcastle, Bristol, Wolverhampton, Southampton, Milton Keynes and in Dublin, Belfast, Dundalk, Mallow, and Cork in Ireland. Other privately commissioned works can be seen at Lismore Castle in Ireland, Chatsworth & Antony House in England and various private gardens in France and Spain.

She is a founder director of the National Sculpture Factory in Cork, a former member of the Arts Council of Ireland, a member of Aosdána, and a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy and international Fellow at the Royal Society of Sculptors in London.
