Alice Clancy is a photographer, architect and lecturer in UCD’s School of Architecture, Planning & Environmental Policy. Her photography has been showcased in many exhibitions such as The Lives of Spaces, part of the group show for the Irish Pavilion, Venice Architecture Biennale 2008 and the travelling architectural exhibition Nine Lives (2015). In 2011 she received an Arts Council of Ireland bursary award for Architecture. She is on the Board of the Gallery of Photography Dublin and is a committee member of the Architectural Association of Ireland.
Derville Murphy is an artist, architect and art historian. In her work as an artist Murphy explores different ways of painting rather than developing a singular style. This has resulted in a body of work that initially appears disparate but within which common threads can be seen to emerge. In particular her interest in landscapes, urban and rural can be seen as she explores the effects of construction, deconstruction and demolition. Murphy illustrates that the causes and effects of mans intervention in the built environment can be consequential, as seen in her paintings of famine cottages, or deliberate as is illustrated in the images of the Ballymun tower demolitions.
