Exhibition: The patient will see you now by Áine O’Hara
12 - 19 Dec 2020, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm (Past)
The patient will see you now is an interactive installation and one-to-one performance work. Focusing on the inadequacies and farcical nature of accessing healthcare in Ireland, the work questions and exposes bureaucracies that oppress those who fall outside certain definitions of ‘normal,’ ‘valuable’, and ‘productive’.
Áine’s work experiments with form, and focuses on connection, conversation, and care. Their long term ambitions include demanding adequate access to theatre and the arts for disabled and marginalised communities through the creation of large scale, ambitious work as well as the continuation of community building projects like Chronic Chats; a creative and social group for chronically ill people which grew from their research as part of her artist residency.
The patient will see you now is kindly supported by The Arts Council of Ireland’s Art Grant Funding 2020.
