Summary note
Autofictions is the first major survey of Irish artist Trish Morrissey (b.1967), charting her career from the early 2000s, and presenting new work made especially for the accompanying exhibition at the Serlachius Museums in 2022. From her seminal photographs that interrogate the visual codes of the family album, to more recent projects exploring the lives of often overlooked women from history, Morrissey always appears in her films and photographs, sometimes performing more than one character. Autofictions explores this dual nature of her practice, whereby the artists' own biography weaves in and out of the stories of others, using her body as a means of both re-enactment and personal reflection. Together, the works create a narrative about female experience from youth to middle age, and beyond. Trish Morrissey was born in Dublin and has been based in the UK since the early 1990s. She has exhibited widely in the UK and internationally and her work is held in major collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Serlachius Art Collection. Autofictions is her first solo exhibition in Finland. Exhibition: Serlachius Museum Gustaf, Mänttä, Finland (05.02.2022-08.01.2023)
Catalog of an exhibition held at Serlachius Museum Gustaf, Mänttä, Finland, from February 5, 2022 - January 8, 2023.
