Empty House – Solo exhibition by Christine Kernohan

4 June – 24 July 2024

University of Atypical are pleased to invite you to the opening of our 2023 Ulster University Graduation Awardee Solo Exhibition. The exhibition launch will take place for Late Night Art Belfast on Thursday 6 June, 6:00 – 9:00 pm. Christine will give a short artist talk at 7:00 pm which will be accompanied by British Sign Language interpretation.

Christine Kernohan received the 2023 University of Atypical Graduate Award. She is an Irish artist working in mixed media with a focus on textiles. She works with a direct method of weaving. This means that she constructs her own weaving loom and weaves the textile by hand. She also uses circular looms to explore repeating forms and spirals within the body.

Kernohan’s inspiration comes from the relationship between the mother and the child. She creates weaves that are intended to be wall tapestries or wall hangings, that could be draped around the mother-like figure to suggest a motherly protection or the protection of modesty for the child. Kernohan also works on the subject of generational trauma: trauma passed on through the womb across generations. She sees textiles as a way to create a safe environment for herself and others, as she uses her practice to work through her own personal trauma. She sees textiles and other art practices as a beneficial way for individuals to work through their distress. Christine graduated from the Belfast School of Art in 2021 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. She received a Master’s Degree in Fine Art in 2023.
