Auscultation is a medical term that describes the listening to the internal body for diagnostic purposes. This series of self-compassionate moments describe the heightened apprehensive listening for an impending change in being. These moments, given finite space to breathe, are an attempt at understanding the body; anticipating decline but hopeful for balance. Stone instruments imply futility, but as objects patterned with personal meaning and value they become aids in the constant assessing and reassessing of the self. This observance is ongoing.
Róisín McGannon is a Visual Artist based in Dublin. Since graduating from NCAD with a BA Hons First Class in Fine Art Printmaking she has completed residencies in Block T supported by Fingal Arts and the inaugural residency in Eoin Moylan Studio, Berlin. She exhibited in her first solo show supported by Fingal Arts in January 2019 in A4 Sounds and has exhibited in the RHA 188th Annual Exhibition Dublin, and gone onto show work in Amsterdam, Cork and Kerry.
Her work is concerned with the unreliable and uncertain position of being in the body. Your anchor to the world being unhinged. Through multidisciplinary media she investigates the difference between the functional and the dysfunctional, both physically and emotionally, then in turn obscures and highlights expectation and capability. She is currently completing a residency at Loughshinny Boathouse, Dublin; supported by Fingal Arts Council.
