Marie Brett

Visual artist

Marie Brett is a visual artist based in Ireland who uses digital media, sculpture and immersive installation to produce artwork as a reflection on contemporary life. Her work recurrently questions culturally shunned and difficult topics, often exploring ideas of loss, crisis and human suffering in non-stable contexts. Her art pieces are evocative, using emotional echo and minimal aesthetic, and often juxtapose ideas of the everyday within a place of unease or subtle threat. Rather than create a direct linear narrative, Marie aims to slow time and open up new space as a contemplative aesthetic on intimacy, grief and vulnerability.

Marie is a graduate of Goldsmiths, London University, and holds an MA (distinction) and a BA (1st class) visual arts Degrees. Marie has received numerous awards for her practice and her artwork is held in collections nationally and internationally. She will collaborate closely with the UCD GLOBUS team as well as other project members on graphic research installations.
