About

// Marie Brett

Hello, I’m an artist based in Ireland creating work that responds to culturally shunned and tricky subjects, often related to ideas of loss and human suffering. My artwork develops through curiosity and is informed by research and collaborations which influences new work. I mainly use photography, sound, video and sculptural forms.

Some previous artwork includes:

· The Amulet: A national touring exhibition of audio-sculptural work (2014/15), exploring signifiers of infant loss made in collaboration with bereaved parents. www.amulets.ie. Artwork held in the Birth Rites International Art Collection

· 2 ROADS: A film about land, home, hospital and religion; unfurling the cultural secrecy of infant death in Ireland today. Selected by Cork Film Festival 2015.

· Care: A film exploring ideas of mirrored displacement in residential care, produced in collaboration with HSE Residential Care Services. Screened at Cork Film Centre 2013.
