May — June 2022
Irina works primarily in performance, drawing, installation or video, to address the tensions appearing when attempting to speak about things beyond our observational capacities, like alien life or hypothetical planets. Since 2009, she has worked with Alina Popa as part of the duo The Bureau of Melodramatic Research to investigate passions in contemporary society, and affective relationships to an unhuman universe. Her work has been shown in Ireland and around the world.
In the CCI, she will work on a theatre performance in collaboration with Irish artist Declan Clarke, inspired by the relationship between Beckett and Ionesco.
