Event description: This webinar aims to explore new methods in which Irish artists are presenting their work in non-traditional formats. On the day three Irish artists will speak on their own work and experiences; Aideen Barry, Ciaran O Keefe & Jennifer Mehigan
Aideen Barry – Bio
Aideen Barry (ARHA) is a practising visual artist based in Ireland but with an international profile. She is a member of Aosdána and lectures in several universities and schools of visual art in Europe and the Americas recent fellowships and posts included: Penn State Uni, LSAD LIT, Drake, NYU, George Washington University, University de Santiago de Chile and Edinburgh University. Her works are a part of the National Collection at Crawford Art Gallery, Trinity College Dublin, University College Cork, NUI Galway, Art OMI New York, CAC Malaga, Musee la Garrotxa Catalonia and the Arts Council of Ireland. In 2021 she won the Golden Fleece Award and the Thomas Dammann Junior Memorial Trust Award. She is currently making a feature film called Klostés for Kaunas 2022 in Lithuania and is working on a commission for the ITMA Music Network for The Bunting Archive.
Ciarán O’Keefe – Bio
Ciarán O’Keeffe’s practice focuses exclusively on live performance. The ephemerality of live performance reflects the central concerns of his work: ‘We are here and then we are gone.’ His work explores the isolated individual, not as ‘up against the world’ but as a quiet unassuming part of the world. Performances evolve from personal memories, seemingly trivial details, scribbled notes in margins, things overheard. He has most recently presented work at IMMA, the NCAD Gallery and on-line via Instagram. He currently lectures in performance at IADT
Jennifer Mehigan – Bio
Initially trained in graphic design and art education, Mehigan’s work spans multiple platforms, mixing together 3d modelling, found objects, stock images, text, textiles, video, painting, sound, scent, and installation. Recently her practice has expanded to include workshops, graphic collaborations with friends, and growing flowers. She is a director and studio member of The 343, and a founding member of FRUIT SHOP.
Her research is currently located in West Cork graveyards, queer Irish garden histories, and inter-species/dimensional/planetary communication.
