Kira O'Reilly employs performance to consider the gendered body
a a site in which narratives of personal, sexual, social & political
knot and unknot in shifting permutations. Direct interventions into
the materiality or fabric of the body explore relationships between
interior/exterior spaces as a continuum defying membrane as an impenetrable
container of a coherent fixed 'self'.
O'Reilly graduated from Cardiff school of Art in 1998 since then
she has performed throughout the UK and Europe. She has received
a number of major commissions and was invited to produce work for
Span2 international performance art residency in London 2001.
