Yvonne McGuinness Biography – Yvonne McGuinness Wiki

Yvonne McGuinness is an Irish visual artist who works in a variety of contexts, including video installation and print.

Born in Kilkenny, Ireland, and now based in Monkstown, County Dublin, her works have been shown in Ireland and the UK, and she holds an MA from the Royal College of Art in London.

A 2004 biography stated, “Recent works have been preoccupied with notions of the portrayal of the self and with deception, dealing with the sublimated desire for self-expression of the artist and the tension between revelation and concealment.”

She has made several short films: This is Between Us, Charlie’s Place, and Procession. McGuiness’s installations incorporate “film, performance, sculptural and textile elements, sound, and writing.”

Her work focuses on subject matter concerned with place, time, and community. She has an interest in the embodied experience of place and belonging by staging live, public, interventions, and performances that create surreal and dynamic moments of interaction and connection to place, time, and communities.

This is immersive work, which is collaborative and generally temporary. Her film installation work often reconstructs the documentation of these performances for gallery contexts.
