Parallel Lines of Enquiry weaves together diverse influences including landscape, music and literature in dramatic drawings that, along with a specially made soundtrack of a short story, La Plage by the French writer Alain Robbe-Grillet, transform the gallery space.
The drawings for this exhibition came out of the research drawings the artist made during her 2010 Fellowship at the Ballinglen Arts foundation in Co. Mayo on the West Coast of Ireland. The work exists in parallel to the function of creative writing and music as diverse as John Cage, Steve Reich or Plainchant as triggers for memory. By exploiting the parallels between the repetition and the gradual unfolding of ideas in her work and that of Robbe-Grillet Fiona Robinson draws attention, in a wider context, to the connections between processes across different art forms.
