The still point of the turning world. Kathleen Moroney (2011).

Create, in partnership with the Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) and Coolmine Therapeutic Community are pleased to announce that Kathleen Moroney has been selected for the Typecast commission.

Interest was sought from artists and craftspeople with experience of working within the context of substance misuse and recovery, to create a new contemporary collaborative artwork utilising clay as a key material.

This commission invited proposals from artists, makers, ceramic artists and artist partnerships. This commission is funded by Léargas through the Grundtvig Programme, which is part of the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme, focusing on education for adults, through formal, non-formal or in informal methods. Typecast was instigated by Portraits of Recovery in partnership with the British Ceramic Biennial as a pilot in 2012. This iteration of the project, Typecast 2014, involves an EU learning collaboration across six countries in order to develop and share methodologies, which support artists working with people in recovery from substance misuse.

Typecast centres on the use of clay as a medium, material and process, offering an opportunity to artists to work collaboratively with a community in recovery to explore ideas that may stem from the groups’ experience.

Kathleen Moroney Biog

Kathleen Moroney was born in New York and educated in the US and Ireland, completing an MA in ceramics at the College of Art and Design, Limerick, Ireland in 1998.

After graduating she returned to live in the US for eight years, where she took part in numerous art residencies, exhibitions and public art projects.

Over the last two years she has focused on site specific installations that reflect on the history and architecture of a space and the gradual passage of time.

Her work has recently been purchased by the National Museum in Dublin for their permanent collection.

Kathleen is living in Co. Clare, Ireland since 2006, and lectures at Dun Laoghaire College of Art (IADT) in Dublin.
