Saidhbhín Gibson’s work explores the framing of the non-human environment for and by contemporary society. She employs multifarious methods of production in the manufacture of the work. Video, photography, drawing, sculpture and needlepoint lace are used to examine the interference by humans of the Natural world. Much of the work exemplifies economy rather than excess or waste.
Gibson is a graduate of NCAD, Dublin (MFA, honours, Fine Art, 2016) and D.I.T. Mountjoy Square, Dublin (BA, honours, Fine Art, 2000). She has exhibited nationally and internationally in solo and group shows including ‘Encounters with the Land’ VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow (2018) where she was awarded the Éigse Graduate prize, ‘Cairde Visual’ The Model, Sligo (2018), ’Loping Towards Darkness’ VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art (solo, 2017), and ‘Make it OK’ touring to seven UK venues (2015-17).
