James Joyce Dubliners A Visual Response & Contemporary Contextualisation by DP Kilfeather

About

Kilfeather's continuing philosophical exploration of power and apathy has taken him on a collaborative journey with James Joyce and his Dubliners texts. Each of the 15 stories inspired deep contemplation on the superficial narrative, how this relates to Joyce's sophisticated and complex use of metaphor and what might have been his actual intention. Drawing from personal experiences of his Irish Catholic childhood and adult life, Kilfeather has made a series of 16 watercolours that interrogate the perpetual cultural relevance of Dubliners and offer a fresh metaphorical interpretation. As a second act within this process, Kilfeather revisited his interpretation of the early twentieth century Dubliners philosophy of Joyce, applying a contemporary contextualisation. Kilfeather then scanned his watercolours, added photography and digitally handwritten text to make further digital montage works that bring his interpretation into a late twentieth and early twenty first century cultural context. This exhibition comprises hung prints, montage and Des Kilfeather's artist's book James Joyce Dubliners — A Visual Response, in an Edition of 15.
