Siobhán McDonald’s practice draws on making visible the invisible, by creating a tangible response to forces that are not immediately apparent. An interest in geology and seismology strongly informs the current work, allowing her to map imperceptible movements of the Earth, subtly manifesting links to both physical locations and to particular moments in time. McDonald also looks to Iceland and it’s state of flux and change, as it is constantly erasing and recreating its own history.
