In her forthcoming exhibition, ‘The Animal’, Julia McInerney explores the possibilities that arise in the applied combination of literary language and minimalist sculptural form. The work is an attempt to fuse these two languages – physical material and words – so as together producing a language unique to their combined state alone. The physical shape and characteristics of the work are constructed within and around the presentation of a fictional narrative that traces the life-shape of an unspecified animal.
