The George Bernard Shaw Theatre

Celina Muldoon

Identity, memory and surveillance are themes around which Celina investigate relationships between socio-political structures and the body. Her work spans Live Performance, Film and Installation. She uses collaborative processes to test live performance methodologies in response to site and context. Her unique Live Installations and videos generate uncertainty through satire and wit. Critical triggers of her live work rely upon audience participation and interaction. Audio and live installation elements work in tandem to manifest highly charged emotional experiences unfolding momentarily in real time.

Muldoon is an artist based in Northwest Ireland. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in Bushwick Studios N.Y., Cyberarts Gallery, Boston and with Craw festival Berlin. Her major multi-disciplinary work SIRENS has been funded by the Next Generation Award and the Artist in the Community Scheme Award from the Arts Council.
