Gabrielle Drimalovski

Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to present ORIGINS, selected from the 2017 undergraduate shows across Ireland. In June the curatorial team from LCA visited the degree shows across the country to choose one artist whose work they felt merited a solo exhibition at St Carthage Hall. Gabrielle Drimalovski was selected on the basis of individual merit, her practice displaying a strong confidence and professionalism.

Gabrielle Drimalovski is a visual artist who works primarily in video installation. Graduating from Limerick School of Art, LIT in June 2017, she is one of 14 students of the Photography and Lens Based Media course.

Gabrielle’s practice is centred around the exploration of the gaze, observation, and aspects of looking. Through study of Lacan’s theory of the gaze and non-verbal communication, her work combines video and digital imagery in order to convey and reflect back at us our subconscious behaviours, innermost desires, and unspoken intentions. Her video work Scopoaesthesia explores not only the notion of voyeurism, but different aspects of how it makes us feel.

ORIGINS is an annual exhibition held each autumn in St Carthage Hall as a way of presenting emerging new artists in a gallery context, alongside Lismore Castle Arts respected programme of important international artists.

Mike Fitzpatrick, Head of School at Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT, said “I am delighted that you have selected Gabrielle Drimalovski to show in St Carthage Hall, it’s a great honour to be selected as the most promising graduate in Ireland this year. Especially as Photography is a new stream, in only its second round of graduation. I am also pleased for Lorraine Neeson as a new Course Leader and the team.”
