Controversy: Public vs Private in Performance Art
Curated by Jill McDermid
Kira O’Reilly’s only NYC performance this fall. O’Reilly is a UK based artist. Her practice is both wilfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, and stems from a visual art background. In her work she employs performance, biotechnical practices and writing to consider speculative reconfigurations around the body. Since graduating from the University of Wales Institute Cardiff in 1998, her work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, Australia, China and Mexico. She has presented at conferences and symposia on live art and science, as well as art and technology interfaces. She has been a visiting lecturer in the UK, Australia and U.S.A in departments of visual art, drama and dance. Recent works have seen her practice develop across interdisciplinary contexts ranging from art, science and technology to performance, live art and movement work.
