SINEAD O'DONNELL [IRELAND]
At the begining of 2010 I began to use the sound of the word �violent� rather than the physical force in my live work. It was a way of depicting a past experience of domestic violence combined with living in a society surrounded by violence. The Violent Series expresses my feelings of isolation and dislocation. Stacking dinner plates so high that they tower above my head, and then collapse, demonstrates the fragility of life. The debris of the action creates a live fragmented sculpture that I see as a birds eye view of identifying boundaries, collectivity, collaboration and community.
The critical and artistic core of my solo work explores identity through immediate and mediated encounters with territory and the territorial. Recent performances have been presented at the National Review of Live Art Glasgow 2010, Art No.11 experimental residency Japan 2010, ArTrend performance art festival Taiwan 2009, Gt Gallery project space Belfast 2009, Shelter 209 Israel 09, My land performance art festival Croatia 09, Glassbox exhibition space University of Ulster Belfast 09, and Paves,Toynbee studios London, 09.

This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
