Contested Site

Contested Site took place on a chilly evening on December 14, 2021, and was broadcast over Zoom to an audience of about fifty people for the Virtually Live and Steaming exhibition that featured the work of ten local and international artists. It was produced through an artist residency with Live Art Ireland onsite at Milford House in rural Borrisbane, Tipperary and was part of a 3-week artist residency. Contested Site was a personal work that reflected my family’s history as an white settlers of Irish descent living now on Turtle Island in Canada. The performance was mediated by two cameras, one camera was directed toward the canvas, and the second camera framing the installation.
