Saoirse Wall is an Irish artist working with moving-image and performance to articulate experiences that lack representation in social narratives of gender, health, and the body. In their work, scale, immersive sound, and suggestive gestures are manipulated to disrupt and discomfort. Their work has recently been screened and exhibited with AEMI, LUX Scotland, Platform Arts Belfast and Hotel Maria Kapel (NL). From 2018-2019 they participated in School of the Damned, a UK-based, peer-led alternative art school. In 2014 their film Gesture 2 was shortlisted for the inaugural Hennessy Portrait Prize and subsequently became the first moving-image work to be purchased for the National Gallery of Ireland Collection. They are a 2020 recipient of the Arts Council Next Generation Award.
