Emma Houlihan, Artist in Residence 09/10

Residency Exhibition: 'Moving Ground'

Project Statememt  

Emma Houlihan is a cultural producer and artist whose practice involves public projects, collaborations, participative and curatorial practice. Houlihan creates a discourse between art and community by engaging directly with people and places, be it offering leg-ups over walls to people in Copenhagen, collaborating with members of Dublin’s parkour community, or helping residents of Greensboro, North Carolina re- arrange their homes. Her work is concerned with the connections and bonds that come out of these exercises, actions which tease out the transformative dimensions of collaborative practice.
