Chloe Brenan is an artist working across moving image, sound, print, language and photography. The porosity of the body and its indivisibility from its environs is a recurring concern. Works often involve close examinations of the poetic haptics of daily life and processes on the edge of perception that question boundaries between bodies, intimate spaces and the wider environment. She explores the simultaneous engagement of the corporeal and the intellect, and the reciprocity between both, that enhances our ability to be responsible and responsive to the world’s patternings and murmurings. On one side there is our ability to measure and model, on the other our somatic capacity to tacitly experience, infer and intuit. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally including Kilkenny Arts Office; Periphery Space, Wexford; Galway Arts Centre; The Library Project, Dublin; Catalyst Arts, Belfast; The Estonian Museum of Applied Arts and Design, Tallinn; as well as in print at Dublin Art Book Fair 2019; Tokyo Art Book Fair, Japan; and I Never Read Art Book Fair, Basel. She has received support for her practice from The Arts Council of Ireland, Thomas Dammann Junior Memorial Trust, Culture Ireland, The NCAD Research Committee, Carlow County Council and ArtLinks. Her work is included in the collections of 100Archive, Ireland; Reminders Photography Stronghold, Tokyo, Japan; New Zealand Audio Foundation, Zine and Art Book Collection, Auckland, New Zealand; and MoMA Library Artist Publication Collection, New York.
