Miriam Kilpatrick is a Northern Irish artist and performer currently completing an MA in Art Psychotherapy. She brings her new work Burgerman to Poplar Union.

About

Burgerman is a device used by the artist to channel image concern, anxiety and social inadequacy. The drawings on paper illustrate how body perception is tangled together, giving shape to the artist’s own fear tracing the possibility of an escape if not a recovery.

The discovery of embroidery led the dialogue with Burgerman on a different level; the slow pace of this craft brought Miriam to reconsider all implications related to the subjects she is investigating, questioning various elements of her own self as well as revisiting some aspects of her art practice.
