Saoirse Higgins is an artist from Dublin. Saoirse is obsessed with natural and man-made power and control and when things do not always go to plan. She is interested in revealing some of the connections between our visions of the world we live in, our expectations for the future and the technology we use to help us with this. She explores the contested spaces of public-private, man-machine, man-nature. Her work is process-driven and has a scientifically influenced, playful approach. Saoirse has featured as an Irish representative at the Thessaloniki 2nd Biennale. She has also shown her work at festivals and galleries such as Montreal Film and New media festival, Transmediale, Siggraph, Exit Art and Location One gallery, New York. She has held residences at e-Mobilart Lab, Disonancias in Spain, Location1 gallery in New York and the Banff Centre for the Arts. She is also a member of the international artist group The Grafting Parlour.
essomenia, organised by Saoirse HIggins and Cora Cummins, will open in People’s Park in Dun Laoghaire on the 11th September 6-9pm. The exhibition will run from the 12th to the 14th.
