Caoimhe Kilfeather | IE

Caoimhe Kilfeather’s work is predominantly sculptural taking influence from an interest in the built environment and our relationships to the spatial, formal and psychological qualities of architecture. She is interested in legacies of forms, materials, systems and methods of production and of how these things comprise our experiences of the world.  

The act of engaging with materials and developing forms in an open and exploratory way is central to her work. The work demonstrates sensitivity to the intrinsic qualities of raw matter and Kilfeather’s manipulation of materials, scale and weight often results in works where the physical properties of objects and structures are obscured and hard to define.    

Kilfeather’s most recent solo show took place in Temple Bar Gallery and was curated by Rayne Booth; she has previously shown in the Irish Museum of Modern Art in the group exhibition, In The Line of Beauty curated by Rachael Thomas and is currently showing work in the Collection exhibition Fragments.
