Cliodhna Timoney’s (b.1993, Ireland) practice encompasses image-making, sculptural installations, sound and video. Timoney’s current work is centred on the relationship between gesture, rhythm and forces at particular sites. Sites such as the back roads of rural Ireland or the dilapidated nightclubs of provincial towns are used as both a vantage point and a stage for the network of ecologies at play. Timoney’s work meditates on various forces that oscillate and collide throughout sites such as social patterns, internal sensations or hidden ecosystems and distorts these relationships in order to discover new logics.
Taking inspiration from reference points such as memory, rural histories and the vernacular; Timoney pushes this matter into new contexts revealing strange and uncanny mutations. Timoney gleans cultural detritus from these sources alongside the debris of everyday life to create allusions of other realities or fictional states.
