Deirdre Feeney - The Passage, 2012

visited in 2009

Workshop: Glass

A mixed-media artist based in Melbourne, Feeney works interchangeably with the translucent material of glass and the moving image to investigate themes of memory, time and empty space. Using architectural glass structures to play with the interaction of inner and outer, she explores how memory infiltrates inside and outside, past and present.

Feeney completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2005 at the Canberra School of Art having previously gained a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at Trinity College Dublin. She has exhibited in Australia, Asia and the UK.

The Procter Fellowship allowed Feeney to carry out a research project based on early 20th Century Cinemas in Paris (the home of Cinema). The project resulted a body of work miniature cinemas constructed in glass, holding projected moving images that explore the relationship between memory and empty space. Feeney also had the opportunity to undertake research at the Centre for European Research and Training Glass Arts Centre (CERFAV), Centre 104, Cite International des Arts and Centre Pompidou in Paris. On her return to Australia, Feeney undertake a four-week residency at the Canberra School of Art Glass Workshop, sharing her experiences with the community at the School of Art.
