Artist Conversation with Ciarán Power, The Hunt Museum, Limerick

Wednesday 22 February, 11am
The Hunt Museum, The Custom House, Rutland Street, Limerick

Ciarán Power is focused on addressing sexuality as a dominant social performance. Joan Riviere’s ‘Womanliness as Masquerade’ states that womanliness is a cover-up to conform with social constructions of femininity; a masquerade whereby the woman as a category does not exist. This would suggest that sexuality is a central part of social performance. The performance reveals a structure; it is a response to a male fantasy. The artworks open a discourse and provide a reference point for speculation surrounding issues that are fundamental to the nature of contemporary social life.
