Personal profile

Biography

Dr Aisling O'Beirn is an Associate Lecturer in fine art sculpture. Her current sculptural work is concerned with exploring space as a physical structure and a political entity by making and animating forms relating to observed and theoretical structures being studied by contemporary astronomers and physicists. It is an extension of previous work on the politics of place, but still rooted in uncovering tensions between disparate forms of official and unofficial information.Previous projects have investigated ideas around entropy, order, disorder and balance and how laypersons try to understand scientific and mathematical ideas. Recent work has been facilitated by Armagh Observatory and Dunsink Observatory.O’ Beirn has exhibited nationally and internationally. She was included in Northern Ireland’s first participation in the 51st Venice Biennale. Her work manifests variously as sculpture, installation, animation and site-specific projects. O’ Beirn (in collaboration with Dr. Martin Krenn) is also working on a three year (2016 / 2019) collaborative research project as part of TRACES (Transmitting Contentious Cultural Heritage with the Arts), funded by Horizon 2020Her work can be seen on www.aislingobeirn.comShe welcomes practice based research projects, which explore theses issues.
