Liam O' Callaghan: Ease Wall

The Process Room, 09.08.04- 22.08.04

Liam O' Callaghan, Ease Wall, Process Room, IMMA, 2004

Irish artist Liam O’Callaghan uses photography, projection, installation and books ranging from fine art to social documentary and in-between in the construction and exploration of his work. Liam’s choice of outlet and materials orientates around the subjects he finds himself dealing with. These subjects include questions of what we value and why, notions of success, preciousness, of beauty, quality and of importance, while also dealing with an investigation of aesthetics and the aesthetic experience. Through his work Liam aims to inspire the viewer and himself both emotionally and intellectually, to challenge us to reassess our habitual responses.

“At the moment I feel the need to make work that is more physical and more of a free flow of creativity, focusing on the physical pleasure of making, something that is rough in aesthetic, where you can see the thinking of it’s maker, something that is optimistic and uplifting, that works on a sensory level, something that is freer from the limitations I put on myself, something that is simple in thought, but unashamed, confident and honest, that is about possibilities, that is an attempted manifestation of the importance of freedom and the action of an expression, freedom in the acceptance of an inevitable failure but with knowledge of the poetry in trying. I understand that this is a lot to expect from any one work and that this will probably be the fuel for a larger body and a long period of work, but this is the direction I feel my practice is going.”
