Short residency May 13th – May 15th 2019
During my short residency at Ps2 Gallery Belfast I began developing a series of works investigating the political history of Gaelic Games in Ireland. This work is rooted in my love of both GAA and art and is an exploration of the preconceptions and often misconceptions we have about people who love sport. I am particularly interested in the parallels of Gaelic Games and activism in Ireland both historically and in recent years.
I wanted to expand my research to Northern Ireland especially as this year the GAA launched a five year plan to increase engagement across Belfast. I used the residency to interview players, film these interviews and create live performances in response.
