Infernal Fragments

Donal Fitzpatrick (Artist), Peng Liu (Curator)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

This solo exhibition was of very large works in excess of 3 metres on paper installed in a public exhibition space at Macau University of Science and Technology. The works were curated by Professor Peng Liu who also wrote the catalog essay. These works utilized a range of mixed media options including photography, painting, printing processes, 3D printing and scanning and drawing. They were installed as an installation of graphical elements within the exhibition space and drew heavily on the Chinese scroll tradition of presenting as an episodic assembly of fugitive elements a graphical investigation of time and memory.

The images flowed between biographical elements and representational iconography in constructing a narrative of a journey. Text was added to the surface of many images indicating key questions of location, identity and time.

The largest image was presented on a table in the middle of the room and was open to performative participation from the audience. These were mostly students initially and using the mark making materials provided they were encouraged to embellish the image as personal memory text. In this way the final work was an amalgam of images drawn from multiple memories and aided my exploration of the co-option of fugitive and foreign memories in the mind as ones own. The final image was a rich surface of conflicting fragments representing the multiplicity of experiences in the mind and memory.
