Performance, photography, video


Past: September 12 → October 29, 2014

Amanda Coogan is one of Ireland’s most renowned performance artists. Her expertise lies in her ability to condense an idea to its very essence and communicate it through her body. Her work often challenges expectations and plays with contexts, such as headbanging to Beethoven and using sign language for the lyrics to Gil Scott-Heron’s The Revolution Will Not Be Televised. Powerful live performances, often over a number of hours, are fundamental to the videos and photographs that form the second stage of each of her projects. For this exhibition, the Centre Culturel Irlandais has chosen key works from her œuvre which she has performed and exhibited nationally and internationally in the Venice Biennale (2003); Liverpool Biennial (2004); PS1, New York; Galeria Safia, Barcelona; The Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam.
