Méadhbh O’Connor’s work is situated in Ireland’s growing art, science and environmental movement. In her work she collides the poetic and the analytic, the spiritual and the technological, the expressive and the restrained, the natural and the engineered, in an effort to construct parallels amongst these different registers. She uses sculptural and multimedia installation, photography, and the written and spoken word. She is Artist in Residence at the Department of Materials, University of Oxford at the invitation of Prof Harish Bhaskaran (2021-2022).Exhibitions include ‘New Era, Artists for Climate Change,’ Solstice Arts Centre, IRL, 2020; ‘Climate Simulator,’ Earth Institute, University College Dublin, IRL, 2018 (solo); ‘Eco-connectivity,’ Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, DE, 2018 and ‘Antarctic Pavilion’ at the 57th Venice Biennale of Art, ITA, 2017. She is supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and holds an MFA from the Ruskin School of Art, University of Oxford, United Kingdom.
