Watchlist Artist: Fiona Kelly

Missing Something Which No Longer Exists, a multi-disciplinary solo exhibition by Fiona Kelly addresses isolation and the interim. Kelly's observations of the manmade landscape, topographic movement, stagnation and metamorphosing debris are representations, characters for her contemporary fables; a legacy of longing, disposability and escape.

In uniting objects, reclaimed materials and text she endeavours to generate happenings. Through visual combinations the viewer is invited to join in a fundamental dialogue intrinsic to Kelly’s work which quietly speaks of urban sprawl, throwaway culture, and the absurdities found in unremarkable environments.
