'The Pull'

A collaborative performance by Ella de Burca and Elaine McCague (LoosySmokes) involving a rope and a poem.

Watch and listen as together they commemorate feminine survival throughout the patriarchal ages, from Salome to Salvita, Aishing to Joan of Ark.

About the Artist:

Ella de Búrca’s installations are conceived for specific occasions, disappearing after they are exhibited. Her bold, large scale sculptures could be mistaken for theatre sets, as she plays with performance and the object to comb through hegemonic masculinity in Irish literature and culture. Recent selected exhibitions include IMMA Rising, June 2015, 'Otherwise,' WYSPA Gdansk, July 2014, and 'The Emergency Pavilion' at The 53rd Venice Biennale, 2013. Awards include The Evelyn Wood Scholarship for The Banff Centre, 2011, Fingal County Council Bursary 2015 and Culture Ireland 2013. Residencies include The Banff Centre, 2011, AIR Antwerpen 2012 and The HISK, Belgium, 2016 to 2017. De Burca holds an MFA from NCAD (2011) and a BA (Hons) from IADT (2009).
