From in and with, CS 2
About the work
From in and with, CS 2 is one of two photographs by Anne Tallentire in the Government Art Collection (the second being From in and with, GH 3). These works draw upon the artist’s long-standing interest in urban infrastructure, mobility, hidden labour, processes of chance and translation. The titles of each relate to the names of six architects (Ruth Morrow, Jane Rendell, Gráinne Hassett, Ellen Rowley, Culturstruction, and Alice Casey) who Tallentire commissioned to write four 100-word texts each in response to images of buildings in Dublin. The objects depicted in her photographs (produced through a variety of drawing processes), were selected and worked with in response to, and in association with, the texts.
Printed as 24 c-type photographs, the series From in and with formed part of Tallentire’s commission for Still we work, a curatorial project and exhibition commissioned in 2013 by the National Women’s Council of Ireland’s Legacy Project. A two-year project, its purpose was to challenge stereotypical contemporary representations of women and work.
Tallentire’s practice, mainly in performance, installation and moving image, frequently engages in visual dialogue between the camera and the object or object and viewer. She is interested in processes of making and unmaking, construction/deconstruction and the placing of things. In From in and with Tallentire also draws upon different ‘languages’ related to architecture and to the wider social issue of embodied gender politics.
