Livestock, Dublin: New Performance

I will be developing a new performance as part of Livestock, in
Market Studios, Dublin. Livestock events foster an experimental space in which artist's are encouraged to develop work in a live but supportive creative environment. This mobilizes the potential fluidity of performance, pulling and stretching artistic practice across and through disciplines, and fostering a crucial space for dialogue and exchange.

As a performance artist this presents a fantastic opportunity for work to be energized by the public moment and yet unconstrained by expectation. Emphasis on experimentation and creative exchange fosters a productive instability, which opens out performance practice and its critical contribution to contemporary culture and discourse.

The line up includes:
Katherine Nolan
Sinead McCann
Dominic Thorpe
Jess Kelly
Katherine Barragry
Valerie Joyce
The Troupe
Colm Clarke
Jennie Guy
Andy Behan
Kit McDermot

Sat 31st July, from 6.30 + rooftop party after!
This event is free, all welcome, BYOB.

SPACE Bratislava: Surface Attention

I will be performing a new piece Surface Attention in SPACE this Tues 13th 17th July as part of MART's An Instructional.

Surface Attention is a series of bodily interventions in gallery spaces across Europe, taking place in SHUNT London, Stattbad Berlin, Space Bratislava and Molesworth Gallery Dublin.

Continuing an exploration of the self as erotic body, this work implicates the frame of gallery space in a perverse female desire. Through the intimate physical contact of the skin with the architecture of the space the work opens out a narcissistic impulse in performance, literally and symbolically pushing it to the surface. The body pressed across surfaces of crumbling brick, cold concrete, bright blue tiles, or ostensibly neutral white walls become invested objects as the body moves between erotic, absurd and vulnerable.

MART , Visual Art Group provide a platform for new media, performance and installation artists. An Instructional: A Touring Exhibition comprises work collated under the principles of 'readymade' practices.
