The narrative undercurrent of Kathleen’swork has found form in site-specific and collaborative projects, public art commissions and gallery installations.
Kathleen Moroney lectures on the BA programme at IADT and is
External Assessor of Fine Art Ceramics at GMIT (2010-2016). She has a Research Masters in Ceramics from LIT and is currently working on a Practice-led PhD at the University of Sunderland, UK. Kathleen has been awarded residencies in New York, Minnesota, Japan, China and Denmark. While in New York City she worked in museum education (2000-2005) for the Guggenheim, MoMA PS1, and the Isamu Noguchi Museum, where a curiousity for the use of ‘space’ and ‘composition’ was ignited; now integral components of her practice. Kathleen’s research focuses on the intersection of a ‘measured’, process based material world of craft and the transcient, immediate nature of contemporary dance, in particular Butoh exercises, to explore the delineation of ‘movement in time’ and the traces of motion inherent in stillness. Her methodology merges a cognitive and physical/embodied approach to the understanding, processing and translation of concept.
