Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell is an artist, educator and curator from Northern Ireland. Her particular interests are everyday life and space in every meaning of the word, regarded as a starting point for her artistic activity. C frequently involves the audience in her actions, turning them into an unique game between the people and their environment where the everyday elements of reality change in surprising ways to show the world as a much more complex place than the one we are used to.

Since graduating from the Belfast univestiy, Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell has worked in the UK, Ireland, Iceland, Canada, Uruguay, Chile, and China.

During her November residency, the artist will work on various projects, including “The Cardboard Cities”. An exhibition under this title will be a part of her MPRA residency as well as the No Women No Art   festival and will include free workshops for children and adults. They will be run by the artist in collaboration with Architecture, Urban Planning, and Design students.

Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell has held a similar workshop in Belfast. Photos from the event can be seen on the website http://uncertainremains.wordpress.com/workshops/cardboard-cities/ and a film documenting the workshop is available here: http://vimeo.com/17114592 and http://vimeo.com/17114563.

NOVEMBER 2011

Sinéad B Cashell http://uncertainremains.wordpress.com/

Sinéad Bhreathnach-Cashell is an artist, curator and educator based in Belfast (Northern Ireland). Since she graduated  in 2007  from University of Ulster her works were seen in Northern Ireland, Ireland, England and Scotland, China and in Venice during the 53 Biennale of Art. She has also participated in artist exchanges in Canada, Chile, China, Iceland, Ireland and Uruguay.  Her practice includes interactive installations; collaborations; drawing; performance and curating.  

In her work Sinéad uses play to question the impact of habits and compliance on our capacity to create new responses. She investigates how our surroundings shape how we experience, explore, investigate, manipulate and think. Her work is generated by a direct response to and observations from her surroundings and their social contexts. Treating play as a way of expression Sinéad transforms the world into a playground full of adventure, where everything and everyone, including  herself, is treated as potential objects of play. Residents of places where Sinéad carries out her spatial interventions are invited to share enjoyment and experience, as well as their skills and knowledge.

Hannah Champion  http://voraciousmaw.blogspot.com/

Hannah Champion, artist and philosopher who lives in Dundee (Scotland) where she graduated from the Duncan of Jordanstone Art College. She also studied at the Staatliche Akademie der BildendenKünste Karlsruhe, Germany. Her works have been shown and performed in the UK, Germany and in Venice during the 53 Art Biennale.

Hannah in her artistic practice is concerned with representations of women within cultural media and general society. Displacing and recycling images from the media, she invites her audience to reconsider and rethink these images. Her work provokes accepted norms and investigates ways in which gender normalisation can be resisted. By primarily using film and photography within her work, she question the medium used to promote certain gender roles within society itself. In her  performances she uses the body physically in order to transcend gendered boundaries.
