Studio 3B April - August 2006 Sculpture/photography/video/film/sound/installation/critical writing/curatorial practice/intervention Much of Vanessa O’Reilly’s work relies on a complex set of locating circumstances organised around systems inherent in a scenario. In Western cultures scenario thinking dominates politics, economics, film, television, literature and art. Through her work O’Reilly chooses dynamism and economy of scenario with its constantly changing sequence of possibilities in a specific and rational way. A nomadic sensibility, an understanding of the shifting nature of possibilities of display, as well as the paradigms that surround and create each and every opportunity, are features of O’Reilly’s work.
