'Residual Inheritance' Mary Mackey

‘Residual Inheritance’ Mary Mackey

Residual Inheritance is the title of a practice-based research for an MA in Fine Art, carried out by Mary Mackey under the supervision of Christine Pybus and Dr Simon Knowles of the Department of Fine Art and Applied Art at the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design.
The research has culminated in a body of work that will be open to the public for one day on Saturday 23rd May. There will be a preview on Friday 22nd at 6pm and an artist’s talk at 2pm on Saturday. “This research reflects on the narratives engendered by objects that have become sites of memory, as a way of considering how material traces may express and encapsulate individual biographies through the memories they embody. Recognising that these artefacts have a worth and value other than a monetary one invests them with what Pierre Nora describes as ‘a symbolic aura’ which makes the objects, and what they evoke, worthy of remembrance.”
