A Portrait of Life Through Belonging: Brigid Mulligan

Artlink, Saldanha Gallery, Fort Dunree

This is the twenty-year anniversary of Brigid’s brother’s death and this body of work acts dually as a memorial to him but also importantly it acts as an instigator for people to open conversations about their own experiences of grief.

The twenty-one cyanotype prints, one for each year of life, are life size ranging from a wristwatch to a motorcycle, a collection of belongings that the artist’s late brother owned. The artist’s family has held onto each item as if it were a part of him.

The series of light sculptures explore what alternative shrines could look like. Assembled from recycled motorcycle indicators, when installed the work becomes an immersive experience where the viewer is plunged into a darkened space of contemplation.
