Statement

Aoife Costello's intentions are to explore performance art by pushing and mirroring the body and observe its translation into photography and video. The artist observes how the body behaves as it moves into different shapes. The body is emerged as a lens for the audience to vividly see the emotion of the performer.  The psychological mechanism is essential for the performance of the artist who is isolated, separated from the everyday environment during a Pandemic. There is an importance of the artist using digital mediums to document themselves to help the further perception of the self. By the literal use of the mirror in more recent work Aoife continues her exploration of the other self and reflects own her own personal lived realities as a source.
