Artist Biography

Saidhbhín Gibson is a graduate of NCAD, Dublin (MFA, honours, Fine Art, 2016) and D.I.T. Mountjoy Square, Dublin (BA, honours, Fine Art, 2000). Gibson's work explores the framing of the non-human world for and by contemporary society. She employs multifarious methods of production whereby the haptic is at the core of the manufacture of the work. Video, photography, drawing, sculpture and needlepoint lace (designed and made by the artist) are used in presenting work that looks at the interference by humans of the natural world.
