The Telfer Gallery presents
Kimberley O’Neill – Circuits of Bad Conscience
Kimberley O’Neill is interested in the dynamics of power, energy and gender within media networks. Considering the ways in which mainstream media perpetuates dominant ideologies, her work speculates on how female energy is stymied and exploited by these circuits. Over the course of her residency at The Telfer Gallery, O’Neill has examined her own complicitous and ambivalent relationship to media, questioning how ideological power is engrained on the body as media-made-flesh. For the exhibition O’Neill will present a new video work built around a science fiction scenario where characters are formed from the cross-fertilisation of personal experiences, historical figures and commercial materials.
Kimberley O’Neill is a Glasgow based artist, who graduated from Glasgow School of Art, 2005 and gained an MA from the Royal College of Art, 2007. Recent activity includes: Line of Sight, group exhibition, Reid Gallery, Glasgow (2016); Conatus TV, screening & event, part of Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (2016); Nos Algaes, Tramway, Glasgow (2014) & Amygdala N.O.S, South London Gallery (2015) collaborative performances with Cara Tolmie and France Lise McGurn. O’Neill is short-listed for the Margaret Tait Award 2017.
