Sinéad is a Scottish artist and graduate of Contemporary Performance Practice from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and works in live performance, movement, sound and film. Deeply rooted in her practice is the desire to explore our relationship with the earth in the midst of spiralling ecological devastation. She is interested in the sea, its tides, shifting and ephemeral tidal sites, Scottish and Irish myth and folklore. She is excited to create new rituals and radically reshape extinct or endangered traditions in order to access a deeper understanding and care for the world around us.
“During my time as Artist in Residence I am excited to use collaborative making methodologies to explore the environment and coastlines of Caithness. I want the arts to be visible and valued and routed in community history, in collaborative history, and I am thrilled to be supported by the Highland Culture Collective, who promote and encourage the practices of co-design, co-authorship and communities as co-creators.”
