We deal with such events with different coping mechanisms- and the technical language here shows the way we often speak about it- in various ways: panic, understanding, acceptance, denial… The coping mechanism for the young artist and filmmaker Enda Oisin Kelly McCann to a life changing experience — as he formulates it- over the summer of 2017, works through and with art. What happened to him and in the aftermath of months spent in hospital is not directly the subject of his filmic work in this exhibition. Creating and re-constructing short moving image pieces, containing intimate flashbacks to childhood and moments from the past, he contemplates his experience and finds unexpected ways to communicate his feelings. In carefully staged and filmed scenes and situations, he composes moving images and gesture, the making of a bed, the filling of a jar, still life like observations, spilling over with a sense of quiet, but tumultuous unease. A sudden sense of personal loss of control and identity are key themes within the works, as he explores both physical and psychological boundaries. Utilising digital and analogue footage, scenes of an everyday nature are imbued with a deeper personal significance. The feeling of premonition permeates through the work, a vague anticipation of something unnerving, like living on a dormant volcano — the title Yellowstone refers to it- with a gloomy chance of erupting. Oisin Kelly-McCann has carefully considered the environments when shooting each piece of film and the situation and the manner in which they are presented.
