Louise Manifold

Series of found blacked out postcards (work in progress), 2017


Louise Manifold works conceptually with film, photography, sculpture and text. Fascinated by the power of stories and the creation of myth, Manifold's work explores narratives and scenarios that challenge on the self and the body in relation to the other. Referencing ideas on cinematic estrangement and theatricality her multi disciplinary practice reflects upon the boundaries of neurosis and myth as a means to explore human disconnection from the lived world in favour of a private real. Underpinning these ideas is a concern with sensory qualities of language, and how it can be translated into physical, tactile and emotional experiences in cinema.
Louise has been the recipient of awards from The Arts Council of Ireland, Culture Ireland, and local authorities.In 2009 she was one of the four artists short-listed for Allied Irish Bank Art prize for young artists of promise.
