Suné Woods is a Los Angeles based artist whose multi-channel video installations, photographs, and collages explore intimacy spirituality and interconnectivity. Referencing ecology, sexuality, and language, Woods illuminates resilience and resistance to tragedy through ancestral traditions. While working across these dimensions – African disparate spirituality and ecological ethics – Woods’ immersive installations center both our corporal and spiritual existence.
Her work offers space to pursue healing and a new source of power both beyond and within our personal histories of violence, destruction, and trauma. By evoking the deep, transformative energy that underlies human existence, Woods reminds us of our being and the ways we relate to the earth and to one another. Her work, in many ways a collective meditation and corporality, inspires a sense of harmonious belonging both within and without water and creates opportunities for continuous reflection, rebalance, and rebirth.
Suné Woods is the recipient of an IMMA Light Work Photography Partnership. This opportunity supports a residency at IMMA for Woods who is an alumni of Light Work Artist-in-Residence programme, this partnership also included an opportunity for an awarded Irish artist, Jan McCullough, to have a residency with Light Work in Syracuse, New York.
