Lunchtime Gallery Talk | Tina Kinsella
Wednesday 13 November, 1.15pm - 2.00 pm, Garden Galleries, IMMA
Drawing on psychoanalytical studies, Tina Kinsella (Lecturer, NCAD) leads a gallery talk on cross-over Surrealists ideas and eclectic interests in fairytale, animal imaginary, humor, gastronomy, eroticism, childhood, and the feminine as a means to revaluate Carrington’s unorthodox relationship to traditional aesthetics. This talk stems from Kinsella’s PhD research on the ethics of aesthetics, focussing on the work and Matrixial theory of Bracha L. Ettinger.
