VENT! Liverpool Air Quality Festival presents Julieann O’Malley: Occlusion
VENT! Liverpool Air Quality Festival launches on Saturday 20 February, with a fortnight programme of free artistic interventions and public forums to raise awareness of Liverpool’s air quality, which organisers describe as ‘an invisible public health emergency’.
Julieann O’Malley is an interdisciplinary artist based in Liverpool. Her practice both for galleries and public space is fundamentally live durational performance installations, video work, sound and photography. O’Malley likes to test the limits of her body during durational performances. She condenses ideas and uses semiotics as a communication method. O’Malley finds ways to explore, engage and have open discourse and dialogues about the ever changing environments and practices of society.
Julieann O’Malley:Occlusion performs an installation, incorporating video work, soundscapes and photography that provokes questions and conversation about the real effects of the ‘invisible intruder’ – microscopic man-made pollution.
Audiences will see O’Malley test the limits of her body as she cycles through a cloud of air pollution made visible.
