Angela Fulcher – Vanity Fair

Thursday 24 October - Sunday 1 December

Vanity Fair, a new work by Cork based artist Angela Fulcher is a large-scale fabric sculpture conceived specifically for the Triskel Christchurch.

Examining the formal properties of materials and their interactions with each other, this piece draws on themes already established in Fulcher’s work to present something new and remarkable for the Christchurch space.

Having previously produced sculptural work exploring the design of temporary structures at festivals, the title of this work visits John Bunyon’s imagining of Vanity Fair, the perpetual fair of rich merchandise described in Pilgrim’s Progress.

Angela graduated from IADT Dun Laoghaire with a first class honours MA in Visual Arts Practice. She holds a BA Hons Degree in Fine Art from the Crawford College of Art and Design, Cork, and also studied History of Art and Design at the University of the Arts London Camberwell. She works primarily in the mediums of sculpture, installation and photography. She currently lives and works in Ireland and has a studio at the Cork Artists Collective.
