In 2012 I made my first piece of Performance Art in collaboration with ANU Productions. It took place in the gallery at The Mac, Belfast, Northern Ireland. It was called “Linenopolis”.
It was the first piece of performance art to be performed in the newly opened contemporary gallery.
I wanted to embody the presence of toil, labour, sexuality and domesticity on the female worker during the 1800’s when Belfast was the largest linen producer in Europe.
I created my first GÚna artwork.
GÚna translates as dress in gaeilge, my native Irish language.
Since then I have made other GÚna’s.
Most recently “Fata Morgana” in Art Hub, Liwa, The Empty Quarter,U.A.E. and “Ceaseless” in collaboration with ANU for The Manchester International Festival.
These are some images of the pieces.
