Live Collision present

Special Event

Kira O'Reilly: Untitled (Bodies) - Live Collision - Roundtable discussion and book launch

Dates: 05 Dec - 05 Dec

Show Time: 5pm

Tickets: €0.00 (Free)

The works of interdisciplinary artist Kira O’Reilly use the uncertain boundaries of bodies as the starting point for their enquiry.

Specifically, O’Reilly asks what kind of societies become possible in collaborations across species, organisms and bodies, and she explores these questions through sustained and experimental engagements with politics, biopolitics, change (social, corporeal, chemical, reactive) and the complex relations between the human and the non-human.

Kira O’Reilly: Untitled (Bodies), edited by Harriet Curtis and Martin Hargreaves, is the first book to offer an in-depth engagement with her many works across diverse formats.

Bringing together writings by major artists and thinkers, such as Marina Abramovic, Shannon Bell and Tracey Warr, alongside extensive documentation of the artist’s work from two decades of practice, the contributions engage with such topics as ideas of performance, feminist political aesthetics, biotechnical practices, image-making and the intersections of humans and animals.

The book also includes interviews, archive material and O’Reilly’s own writings.

Speakers will include Kira O’Reilly (Artist), Harriet Curtis (Editor), Fergus Byrne (Artist), Amanda Coogan (Artist) and others to be announced soon.

Live Collision and Live Arts Development Agency – LADA join forces to launch this publication with Project Arts Centre, Dublin. Other launches will take place at Tiedekulma / Think Corner, Helsinki and at Barts Pathology Museum (part of Queen Mary University of London), London.
