Beyond the Body: An Illustrated Lecture with Kira O'Reilly
Kira O’Reilly will be visiting Perth as a speaker at the Quite Frankly symposium and as an exhibiting artist in HyperPrometheus, a new exhibition presented by PICA and SymbioticA opening on 19 October.
Kira O’Reilly is an artist currently based in Helsinki where she leads a pilot masters programme in in Ecology and Contemporary Performance at the Theatre Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki. Her practice, both willfully interdisciplinary and entirely undisciplined, stems from a visual art background; it employs performance, drawing, makings, biotechnical practices and writing with which to consider speculative reconfigurations around The Body.
This is a very special opportunity to hear directly from Kira O’Reilly in an intimate lecture.
