Saoirse Wall

I work in performance, moving-image, text and audio that is grounded in erotics. Threads of these varying practices inform and problematise each other. Movement picks up where words fail to describe; words attempt to express sensory experiences that border on indescribable; moving-image straddles the tension inbetween.

A commitment to accessibility is at the core of my practice, with a particular interest in developing a vocabulary of audio-description for dance portrayed in point-of-view camera angles. There is a frictioned relationship in my work between deep attraction to gesture and non-verbal communication and a desire to translate and make accessible the affective experience of watching bodies move in space.
