Áine Kelly is an Irish visual artist who specialises in photography, sculpture, and performance. She is a recent graduate in Fine Art from the Crawford College of Art and Design and has previously studied in the University of Fine Arts in Poznań, Poland. Currently, her work examines the nature of photographical representation and what it’s role plays in today’s image choked world. Her practice involves an investigative approach in order to find new ways to capture an authentic ‘photograph’. Releasing herself from the camera, she works directly with light sensitive papers, lens, transparent materials, and most importantly, light.
Recent exhibitions include: Pass It On… L’hybride, Lille; Unease, UP Gallery, Berlin; A Performance Caravan, curated by Amanda Coogan, Cork. She was featured as part of The Performance Caravan in Performance Art in Ireland: A History edited by Aine Philips.
