Sue Rainsford

Sue Rainsford is a writer and researcher based in Dublin. Her practice is concerned with radical and chronic experience, the material intersection between visual and literary arts practices, and explicit fusions of embodiment and critical inquiry. She is a graduate of Trinity College, IADT, and Bennington College, Vermont, where she completed her novella Redder Days. Current projects include Entirely hollow aside from the dark, a psycho-acoustic installation made in collaboration with Alan James Burns currently touring Ireland. In September 2017, she and Bridget O’Gorman will commence the Freud Project Residency at IMMA, responding to Lucian Freud’s assertion ‘I want the paint to feel like flesh.’ A previous recipient of the Arts Council’s Literature Bursary Award for her novel Follow Me To Ground, she is editor of the limited edition publication some mark made, and recipient of the VAI Critical Writing Award 2016/17.
