Chloe Brenan is an Irish artist from rural County Carlow who divides her time between Carlow and Dublin. Through moving image, sound, text, and photography she explores the simultaneous engagement of the body and the intellect, and the reciprocity between both, which enhances our ability to be responsible and responsive to the world’s patternings and murmurings.
On one side there is our ability to measure and model, on the other our somatic capacity to tacitly experience, infer and intuit. The porosity of the body and its indivisibility from its environs is a recurring concern, especially against a backdrop of climate change. Works often involve close examinations of minutiae of daily life and processes on the edge of perception that question boundaries between bodies, intimate spaces, and the wider environment.
