Aoibheann Greenan is an Irish artist whose practice is rooted in a critical exploration of experience design, navigating its dual nature of capture and escape.

New Wing

Working across moving image, performance, installation, sculpture, costume and drawing, her theatrical stagings pull at the seams of our commodified experiences, allowing aberrant or repressed material to surface. Past works have explored neuromarketing, psychedelic tourism and historical reenactment, warping their presentation through invented rituals and narratives that propose alternate forms of agency within neoliberal structures. Strange loops emerge across digital culture, neuroscience, cultural history, and esotericism, eliciting patterns of thought and behavior that persist throughout time.

Greenan’s work has been presented at South London Gallery, Tate Modern, Raven Row, The KW Institute, IMMA, Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar Gallery, EVA International, New Contemporaries and Film London’s Selected Program. She is a co-founder of the artist collective East London Cable.
