About the Artist

Sharon Murphy is a visual artist and curator based in Dublin. Her lens-based practice encompasses photography, video, sound and costume and her work is rooted in theatre and performance. Her interests centre on the performative aspects of photography and on an exploration of the essence of performance. She conceives of space as ‘staged’ and the body as ‘site’ where the outer world and inner feelings intersect. She is especially interested in representing the felt experience of childhood.

She has received support from The Arts Council of Ireland, The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Co Co and works collaboratively with performance ensembles and actors. Most recently she has exhibited at RHA Dublin; Golden Thread Gallery, Belfast; Dunamaise Arts Centre, Portlaoise; Loop Festival of Video Art, Barcelona; and Yaga Arts Festival, Lithuania. Sharon holds a BA in Photography from Dún Laoghaire Institute for Art, Design and Technology IADT and a MA in Drama from UCD.
