Artist Jill Quigley hones in on architectural space in ‘Builds’

Jill Quigly

Donegal artist Jill Quigley is exhibiting at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, from 16 to 20 August. Her focus is on photography and installation, which she uses “to inhabit and imprint upon architectural space.”

Her project, on show during Heritage Week, examines basic mark-marking in architectural space, where photographic material of interior walls being painted is taped to a wall and painted with similar techniques and tools. She explains further: “The photographic documents of these actions record the basic gestures of applying paint to walls as subject and process, both merging as the wall is increasingly disrupted by the gestures of painting over time.”

Her Builds installation hones in on a series of photographs recording an interaction with a Dublin house undergoing renovation. “As the site is in a state of deconstruction,  it encourages the imagining of how it could become a place of domestic comfort and self-expression. Velvet curtains are used to refer to this possible future domesticity and inhabitation and are combined with construction materials to create objects which relate to the house but have their own presence in the gallery space.”

Jill Quigley completed an MFA in Photography at the University of Ulster in 2014, having previously studied Art History at Trinity College Dublin.

Everyday from 11am to 5pm, except on 20 August from 1pm to 5pm.
