Jaki Irvine, Star (1994), Sweettooth (1993)
with an introductory text by Gwen Burlington
aemi online is an ongoing virtual exhibition space for new and existing moving image work by Irish and Ireland-based artists. Each work showcased through this platform will screen for a fixed duration and will be accompanied by a commissioned introductory text that will remain accessible after the run of the film has drawn to a close. Previous exhibitions and upcoming works will be listed on this page.
This edition of aemi online showcases two works by Jaki Irvine, both made in the 1990s and featuring the same charismatic, off-screen protagonist. One of Ireland’s most highly regarded artists working in video installation, photography, music composition and writing, this screening presentation draws attention to an early phase of Irvine’s career when she was making single channel work on analogue film.
