The work of Jill Quigley (1981, Donegal, Ireland) is located between photography and installation. Her recent work has been concerned with the representation of rural Irish life and landscape and disrupting traditional approaches and narratives to this subject.  In her acclaimed work, Cottages of Quigley’s Point, she made and photographed a series of playful interventions within abandoned cottages in Donegal.  Rural Fluorescent focuses on the presence of high-vis materials and fluorescent colours within rural environments in Ireland.


Artist Biography  Jill completed an MFA in Photography at the University of Ulster in 2013.  Her photography has been published in the British Journal of Photography and as part of the Where We Are series of photo books. Recent exhibitions include Schau Fotofestival in Dortmund, Pingyao International Photography Festival in China, Sirius Arts Centre in Cork, Format Festival in Derby, Belfast Photo Festival and The Photographers' Gallery in London. Jill will be represented by Belfast Exposed at Unseen Photo Fair Amsterdam 2015.
