Photo Fringe First Monday

Daisy O'Neill

Join the Brighton Photo Fringe team on Monday, 1 April for an informal gathering at partner venue Phoenix Brighton.

This month, on April Fool's Day, it looks like we won't have left Europe quite yet. Our guest speaker is the photographer Daisy O'Neill, talking about her recent series of work, Killuragh, that is a response to Brexit.

Following the EU referendum of June 2016, O'Neill has been returning to Ireland to the farm on which her grandfather grew up and where her father spent his childhood summers. The farm is in Killuragh, Co. Limerick and until this project she had visited only once at the age of five. Through this project she is exploring the relationship between place, identity and memory, especially the transference of memory through generations.

Alongside the photographs O'Neill is presenting her own words and text sourced from significant Irish writers, authors, poets and playwrights. Since the vote, she has gained Irish citizenship and although this work is intrinsically personal, the work presents a shared experience with the other hundreds of thousands of UK citizens applying for Irish citizenship and passports.

Daisy O'Neill is a graduate of the BA Photography course at the University of Brighton. She was selected for Not the Final Project exhibition in Hastings during BPF18. Curated by Photo Hastings the show presented the latest contemporary photographic practice from some of the finest emerging talent in the UK.

Join us for an informal chat before and after the talk. There is now a great new cafe at Phoenix so you can get a hot or cold drink and a snack to keep you going. We look forward to seeing you there.
