WORK OF THE WEEK!

Jellyfish Lake (2002) by Dorothy Cross is a short film that pulls the viewer beneath the water’s surface as a naked woman floats amongst jellyfish. Feelings of apprehension quickly subside as the gentle pulsing of the jellyfish, amorphous and transparent, appears to reflect a mutual awareness with the solid, vulnerable human figure.

It was filmed at an isolated lake in Palau, Micronesia where millions of golden box jellyfish ( Chironex fleckeri ) migrate daily. Here, the artist – who ‘sees nature, the ocean and the body as sites of constant change and flux’ – was conducting investigations into the biomechanics of these jellyfish. The resulting short film captures a particular resonance between the motion of human hair in water and the alternating contraction and relaxation of the jellyfish.

Dorothy Cross  (b.1956) ‘examines the relationship between living beings and the natural world’ through works in sculpture, photography, and film. Having studied in our gallery building during the 1970s, she went on to represent Ireland at the 45 th  Venice Biennale in 1993.

The artist lives in coastal Connemara and continues to exhibit nationally and internationally, most recently with Damascus Rose (17 February – 14 April) at Frith Street Gallery, London and in Simone Rocha’s girls girls girls (2 April – 30 October) at Lismore Castle Arts, County Waterford.
