Sinéad O’Donnell is one of Northern Ireland’s foremost performance artists, with an international profile through numerous residencies and performances both nationally and internationally. Her work explores identity, borders and barriers through encounters with territory and the territorial. She sets up actions or situations that demonstrate complexities, contradictions or commonality between medium and discipline, timings and spontaneity, intuition and methodology, artist and audience. She often uses her body to investigate both her own and cultural boundaries, particularly in relation to the restrictions placed on women. Despite deliberately avoiding the sensationalisation of the body, her works often promote strong reactions and emotions.
This DVD features 32 selected videos in various different formats made from 1999 – 2017 giving the viewer a closer insight to a practice that has led Sinéad on a journey across the globe. It has been produced as one of O’Donnell’s strategies for offering audiences outside the real time performances access to her solo work.
