An exhibition of work by Róisín McGannon winner of the Fingal Graduate Award 2017

How it Stands, Provisionally presents new work created during a year long residency in Block T Studios.

Through performative video and photography the show explores corporeal awareness; thinking through the body – the body in relation to the body, and the body in relation to the immediate space around it. The acute knowingness we have of our bodies and the strain that can arise from this awareness.
