Preview event: 7 July, 6pm – 9pm.

Nikkita will be exhibiting her recent work from her project 32 – 26 + 6 – 1. This project is based on the current political situation in Ireland, with a key focus on the landscape, landmarks and territories. The title of her project is a representation of the size of the Island of Ireland, the free state and the occupied six counties with the scale and number of her artworks referring to this. Morgan will also be exhibiting photography work from her recent residency in Jerusalem with reference to her upcoming project in Palestine.

Nikkita Morgan is an Irish political textile artist currently undertaking a year-long artist-in-residence programme at George Watson’s College. Morgan received her Master’s in Textile Design in 2014 from Norwich University of the Arts and was a recipient of the Arts and Humanity Research Council Award for her course of study (AHRC). Before embarking on postgraduate study, Morgan was an undergraduate student at University of Wales: Trinity Saint David: Coleg Sir Gar studying a BA (Hons) in Textile, Art, Design & Craft (2010-13).

On completion of her degree she received the Textile Student of the Year Award. The inspiration for Morgan’s practice derives from her on-going passion and interest in the North of Ireland’s troubling landscape. Delving into the historic, contemporary, religious and socio-political outlook of the struggle, this is a continuation of her previous BA and MA degree research into these areas.
