Tara McGinn in CCA Project Space
Artist Tara McGinn is spending four weeks working in CCA's Project Space over March and April 2022. Over the month Tara is visiting old sketch books and finding new ways of making and exploring ideas, with the studio and evolving work visible from the gallery's windows at 10–12 Artillery Street.
Tara is an interdisciplinary artist originally from Enniscorthy and is a former co-director at Catalyst Arts and studio member of Flax Studios in Belfast. Her work combines sculptural (re)production, image-based assemblage and writing. Her developing studio processes aim to connect, contrast and translate subjects of trauma, memory, identity and space. Recent exhibitions include Woman in the Machine at VISUAL Carlow, and her solo show Nothing Alien is Human to Us at Platform, Belfast. She was part of CCA's Window Texts 2021 series with Mincers, designed by Reece Kennedy.
Tara was invited to occupy the CCA Project Space as part of her participation in the PS² Freelands Foundation Programme. Fellow programme artists will feature in the CCA Project Space later in the year.
