VISUAL ART: Dētrīmentum by Katie Whyte
Saturday 12th November, 2022 - 10:00 - Wednesday 21st December, 2022 - 17:00Admission Free
Dētrīmentum is a video and photographic installation by Kildare artist Katie Whyte. A Latin word meaning harm, loss, or damage, Dētrīmentum is an exploration of the journey of an object from an intact historical/archival piece, to an object that has fallen into disrepair and out of the collective memory. This installation focuses on presenting hidden and lost historical narratives in photographic form. Using new media glitching techniques, the detached narrative histories of these objects are interlaced with the code of their images, producing innovative media lens-based work.
