Annie O'Donnell

Annie O’Donnell’s performative approach to making, springs from her previous career as a community dance artist, and researches how sculpture relates to identity and place. Her body-scaled works form an open-ended dialogue between themselves and their sites, rather than a linear narrative or categorization. In this way, they reference the works of Neo-Dada, Fluxus, and Arte Povera artists, with contingent strategies of production clustered around an innovative approach to materials; the assemblage of found objects; the collage of elements from different worlds; and the extensive use of chance and improvisation in urban settings.
