How to Live Here is a visual arts project that asks questions about my desire to return to rural Ireland as a queer woman who once left in search of community. Navigating current identity within a context that is at once familiar and distant, I am exploring my relationship to the land and its traditions through photography, text and holographic video.

This work has been exhibited as part of Halfway to Falling by Kate O’Shea – Lord Mayor’s Pavilion Cork, The Mart Gallery’s Annual Awards Exhibition 2022, and in part at Images Are All We Have Exhibition in Dublin Castle for PhotoIreland Festival 2022. Supported and funded by Sample Studios, Cork, A4 Sounds Dublin and The Arts Council of Ireland
