Sarah Kelleher : Affective Entities

CIT Wandesford Gallery 5th – 26th March

In collaboration with MAKE 2016 Symposium: Objects and Revolution, this exhibition features art objects created by recent graduates of CIT Crawford College of Art and Design (CIT CCAD) as well as the artist Marie Brett, who have been invited to explore how their engagement with materials can manifest ideas of loss, absence and trauma.

Affect, in Brian Massumi’s definition, is less a feeling or emotion, but an intensity – a sensory impression which can act as a trigger for profound thought. This exhibition seeks to engage the viewer by incorporating visual, tactile and haptic dimensions to address our fraught histories, endeavouring to create an impression which compels us to look, an encounter which provokes us to interpret, an expression which forces us to think.
