Sinéad O’Donnell

Originally from Dublin and based in Belfast since 1995, Sinéad graduated from the University of Ulster in 1999 and received a fellowship from AHRB to take a Masters programme at Dartington College of Arts from 2003-04 where she graduated with distinction. She studied sculpture in Ulster, textiles in Dublin and visual performance and time-based practices in England. Her work has been presented in Asia, Canada, Europe, Eastern Europe, Middle East, South East Asia and South America and supported by Arts Council Northern Ireland, Socrates Erasmus, the Arts & Humanities Research Council and the British Council.

Recent performances have been presented at the ‘National Review of Live Art’, Glasgow (2010), ‘RITES’ performance art event, Singapore (2012), ‘Mobius’, Performance space, Boston, USA (2012), ‘Caution’ an unlimited commission, London 2012 festival, South Bank Centre, London & Golden Thread gallery, Belfast, Northern Ireland (2012), Contemporary Art Factory, Tokyo, Japan (2011), My Land performance art festival, Croatia (2012), ‘Art of Encounter’, Blackmarket International Belfast, Northern Ireland, 2012 and ‘Asiatopia’ performance art festival, Thailand (2012).

Sinéad’s performance practice is nomadic and travel has broadened her cultural perceptions and influenced her artistic sensibilities regarding time and space. She is also highly active on the Belfast performance art scene working with local organisations to foster performance art activity and supporting emerging artists in her community.

The critical and artistic core of Sinéad’s solo work explores identity through immediate and mediated encounters with territory and the territorial. Her work often references her position as a performance artist and the co-existence of other women in the world.

Sinead recently led CAUTION, a ground-breaking project working with disabled artists to explore invisible disability in performance art as part of London 2012 festival.
