‘Shape Histories’ is a collection of speculative fiction written in response to work by artists, Deirdre Breen, Robyn Carey, Gráinne Nagle and Sophia Vigne – Emerging female artists who are producing work that is abstract, geometric and bold. 

Writers Emily O’Brien, Cora Lenihan, Theo Hynan-Ratcliffe and Ilyana Kuhling were tasked with producing a response to a given artists work that reimagined the history of a ‘shape’ that they observed in the work. The resulting pieces have titles such as ‘Panthalassa : The Shape of a Dream’, ‘We Begin in Light : The Shape of Time’ and so on, and are imbued with interrogative and intimate ideas – informed by the work of four of these talented emerging female artists.
