The talks series broadly looks at how contemporary artists have used site and location as frameworks for research, installation and theme.

No booking is required for talks this term.

This Must Be The Place is a new series of public lectures that takes its title from the 1983 Talking Heads song, a song that was unusual in their catalogue as a love song to place and home. The talks series broadly looks at how contemporary artists have used site and location as frameworks for research, installation and theme. Talks are live and in person and during this Spring term 2023, the talks will vary in terms of date and location. The second part of this series will feature artist talks by Owen Boss, Clodagh Emoe, Garrett Phelan, Elva Mulchrone and Aoife Dunne .

Aoife Dunne’s talk will be launched digitally online on the 7th of April. 

Artist bio:

Digital installation artist Aoife Dunne creates visually-arresting, immersive environments fusing sculpture, video, sound, performance, technology, and costume. Fuelled by a fascination with digital and material culture, Dunne’s idiosyncratic touch is laced with references to the surreal and hyper-real. The artist’s socially engaged practice explores the borderline between reality and utopia, enveloping audiences in abstract, detail-driven virtual and physical realms. The artist playfully illustrates the psychological complexities, desires, and illusions that haunt late-capitalist culture, providing a critical take on contemporary realities, yet also exuberant and absurd.
Aoife Dunne (1995, Dublin) studied Fine Art Media at The National College of Art and Design and received her BFA in 2016. Since graduating, Dunne has had numerous exhibitions internationally, including The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, The Royal Academy of Arts London, the Irish Museum of Modern Art with upcoming shows in New York, Paris, and Tokyo.
