ARTIST’S STATEMENT 

My work is about the fundamental role of language in our experience of consciousness and external reality, and consequently, in our construction of ourselves. This particular show looks at the unravelling of our construction of the self through loss of memory. By using the "old", and to some obsolete, medium of calligraphy, as well as overt imagery of loss/absence (my pictures from the Pere Lachaise and Montmartre cemeteries in Paris, and Ashkeaton friary in Ireland) I'm interested in these spaces we eliminate or lose from our memories by ceasing to tell their stories, or by overwriting them with new ones.

I have used a patchwork of media – photography, calligraphy, stencil, fragmented literary references – to mimic the fragmented memory as well as the attempt to reconstruct something/anything from the remnants to understand and integrate this loss. We are used to and expect continuity in the stories of our selves, and these pieces examine what happens when this expectation of continuity is disrupted.
