Cléa van der Grijn: Reconstructing Memory

The Model is pleased to present an exhibition of newly commissioned work that marks a major turning point in the practice of Irish artist Cléa van der Grijn. Reconstructing Memory is a multifaceted experiential and textured exploration of the societal disparities in approaches to death in Mexican and Irish cultures. Film, photography, sculpture, painting and installation are all sensitively utilised in this rich, beautiful and considered exhibition.


Through her artistic practice van der Grijn seeks to unravel the rational, social and emotional circumstances that are constructed around death; and through the use of multiple mediums, she unpicks the complexities of the culture of death and reconstructed memory.
