From a series of one line drawings documenting the circus performers and festival attendees rehearsing and performing throughout the weekend event. Stemming from my live art practice, Sally  uses drawing as an attempt to authentically record a lived moment. She uses single lines to capture activities, events, and sometimes to position activity. Disembodied heads mark a fleeting moment of time as the line disappears off to catch up with ongoing activity.

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.
