Info

b. 1991 in Dublin, Ireland. I am a visual artist working in Ireland and the UK. 


_______


Currently I deliver public participatory projects for the National Gallery of Ireland.  


In my studio practice the body is central. I reiterate, rehouse and reactivate gestures. Strategies of repetition and instruction often lead to abstraction. These performed actions

probe the politics of representation and display from the domestic to the institutional.

I explore themes of gender, loss and guilt, migration, displacement, and the urban landscape.


In my socially engaged practice I focus on projects which develop inclusive and

meaningful dialogue to combat prejudice, social isolation and loneliness. To find out more about the intersections between my studio and social practice please see my current reserach.
