How to Flatten a Mountain Facilitator Aisling McCoy
Our final post highlighting the facilitators for How to Flatten a Mountain, our exciting opportunity for artists who’s work in whole or part makes use of photography, features the work of Aisling McCoy. The deadline for this residency and exhibition opportunity is this coming Sunday and you can read more about it here…
Aisling McCoy is a fine-art and commercial photographer based in Dublin. Her background as an architect is central to her practice, and her work investigates the conflict between architecture as an intellectual ideal- created through images, and its translation into built form. She is particularly interested in the ideological aspect of inhabitation and the role of both architecture and photography in the construction of the ideal.
Since graduating from the MFA programme at Belfast College of Art, University of Ulster, in 2015, Aisling’s work has been exhibited in Dublin, Belfast, London, Paris and Pingyao. Her photobook ‘The Radiant City’ was shortlisted for the Kassel Photobook Dummy Book award in 2015. She is currently working in a new body of work at the former Tempelhof airport in Berlin as part of the Belfast Exposed Futures programme which will be exhibited as a solo-show in April 2017.
