Drawings of East Belfast, Commissioned by East Belfast Partnership, 2017
This series of drawings was commissioned by East Belfast Partnership, to capture the living and breathing heart of the community in East Belfast. They celebrate the places where local people work, meet and socialise, avoiding more famous local landmarks such as Samson and Goliath in favour of presenting a more intimate view of culture in East Belfast.
Sally O’Dowd is a visual artist and curator with a socially engaged practice. As a politically aware artist, her research is concerned with identity and in particular intimate female ritual and investigating the role – self selected and enforced – of women in contemporary Irish society. Her artwork also focuses on authenticity in documentation by way of performance, film and drawing. she creates often absurd, socially awkward performance, in which costumes and props amount to an abject beauty. She frequently works collaboratively in both her artistic and curatorial practices.
