A key element of the Freud Project is an engagement with contemporary artists and art practitioners in response to Freud, revealing exciting new perspectives on this major artist today. In March 2017 IMMA invited interested candidates to propose contexts and research within their own practice which would explore, contest, expand, complement or radicalise the resonance and impact of the work on show in the Freud Centre. Through this opportunity IMMA wishes to support the development of studio practice and artistic production to open new possibilities around the work, and to explore with residents new ways of working with IMMA’s many audiences.

Laura Fitzgerald

Laura Fitzgerald

Through a humorous lens Laura Fitzgerald points to problematic and absurd aspects within complex political and personal situations. Her work reveals both the difficulty of proposing a solution and is yet interested and driven by a multiplicity of options or proposals for new imaginative states.
