Sarah Browne is a Dublin-based Irish artist. Her research-based practice investigates the materiality of knowledge, attending to the intersection of invisible structures of power with bodily experience. This sculptural practice includes writing, publishing, performance and public projects, encountered both within and outside gallery environments, as well as extensive collaboration.
In 2009, Browne co-represented Ireland at the 53rd Venice Biennale with Gareth Kennedy and Kennedy Browne. Solo exhibitions include Hand to Mouth at CCA Derry-Londonderry and Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane, and The Invisible Limb, basis, Frankfurt (both 2014). Selected group exhibitions include From a Poem to a Sunset, Daimler Contemporary, Berlin; The Pattern Exchange, Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin (both 2015); The Peacock, Grazer Kunstverein and One Foot in the Real World, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (both 2013).
Browne currently lectures in the Department of Sculpture and Expanded Practice at the National College of Art and Design, Dublin.
Jesse Jones is a Dublin-based Irish artist. Her practice crosses the media of film, performance, and installation. Often working through collaborative structures, she explores how historical instances of communal culture may hold resonance in our current social and political experiences. Her project and exhibition NO MORE FUN AND GAMES at Dublin City Municipal Gallery, the Hugh Lane, established a “parasite” institutional structure within the museum space. This work explored how the politics of exclusion operates in relation to the role of women in the history and production of the artistic canon. She is interested in how political movements and ideas might be expanded to institutional performative gestures. Jones questions how we may look, not only through the lens of vast historical movements but also through the incremental shifts in how we inhabit our everyday lives and experiences.
Previous exhibitions include the Istanbul Biennale 2009 as well as solo exhibitions at Artsonje Centre Seoul and RedCat Los Angeles. Jones will represent Ireland’s pavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale 2017.
