Catherine Hehir


Catherine is an artist whose practice has included the development of several forms of collaborative endeavour, such as a series of large scale durational and ephemeral projects under Hehir & Noonan collaborations, which was co-initiator of an international collective project titled State of Print – that questions the structures and mechanisms of state in relation to expanded print with current art structures. She is currently appointed as a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at the Crawford College of Art and Design. Residencies include Amsterdam Grafisch Atelier, The Purple Bamboo Studios Hangzhou China, Tyrone Gutherie Centre, Monaghan, and the LARQ Centre of Research in Western Tasmania.

Artist statement

The work navigates the boundaries between traditional art making and new technologies in an experimental manner working both independently and collaboratively using several different mediums but primarily expanded print materiality and how it has integrated/expanded into the fields of sculpture and Installation. Current work engages within site-specific events gathering sound, fauna and obsolete objects related to space and place with rural environments, transferring ideas into embodied sculptural artworks, casts and works on paper referencing the index of a process. My work explores the phenomena around human intervention within a rural environment and artwork’s connection within cultural geography.
