My work explores personal histories of invasion, famine and colonisation, interrogating the human/nature relationship of industry within the countryside whilst observing the constant movement and change inherent in a working landscape and decolonising the archive.
My work examines the complicated relationships between land, landscape and ecology in a rural space. Layering conflicting histories of colonialism and invasion with current issues of biodiversity and coastal erosion, I work with photography and moving image installation. Text features in my work to create narrative and reference. Embracing the sublime, my work investigates the allure of the rural landscape whilst acknowledging the dark histories of the past. Creating an immersive experience, linking the many pasts with the present within the landscape, gives insight into the realities and expectations of land and sustainability in the Irish rural environment.
