Heidi, out of interest, what artists are you interested in yourself ? What kind of stuff influences you, are you exhibiting anywhere at the moment or have you done any installation pieces. Whats the drive behind your work ? Have you done any live art yet ? Serious lack of cutting edge stuff in Ireland, not just in cork, Dublin hasn't much to offer either, usual boring run of the mill stuff, seriously lacking passion. Be good to get a group of likeminded artists together to organise something knew and fresh.
Check out Amanda Coogan, Kira O Reilly, Aideen Barry - all very young Irish artists working in performance!
My work is body-based and often relates to the endurance and presence of the human body. "Live art" covers a huge umbrella of ideas lots of which I am experimenting with at the moment! I have two student shows coming up in London in March. I've exhibited bits and pieces when I was studying in Limerick.
