Miriam O’Connor, Leylandiic, 2020

 

Miriam O’Connor is from Ireland and was educated at Technological University, Dublin and completed a Research Masters at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design & Technology, Dublin (2011). In her practice she draws inspiration from the sights, sounds and language of everyday life. She is curious about the multifaceted roles photography occupies in culture, and the manner in which this persuasive medium permeates the way we engage with the world around us. Rather than providing answers, O’ Connor positions photography as a tool for posing questions, a playful medium that commands its own attention and analysis. Following her relocation to her family farm in recent years, O’Connor now occupies a dual role of farmer and photographer, where she is interested in engaging with the elasticity of this medium throughout everyday agricultural life. 

In recent times, O’ Connor was awarded the Visual Artists Ireland, Experiment! Award (2020) and her long-term body of work, Tomorrow is Sunday was published in conjunction with A Woman’s Work by Gallery of Photography Ireland (2020). A solo show of this work will take place at The Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin in 2021. In addition to her art practice, and farming, O’Connor also lectures part-time at Griffith College Dublin. Her work is part of FUTURES, a photography platform that pools the resources and talent programmes of leading photography institutions across Europe, and A Woman’s Work, a project that uses photography and digital media to challenge the dominant view of gender and industry in Europe. Her work is held Arts Council of Ireland Collection, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Office of Public Works, Galleri Image, Denmark.
