Artsadmin bursary recipient Nicola Canavan discusses her work with Lois Keidan of the Live Art Development Agency.
Canavan's practice is rooted in action based performance and spans live work, documentations of its products and traces and the representation of these in other forms. She questions notions of beauty, pain and expectation, transforming brutal acts into tender and generous anecdotes of allegiance. By acknowledging and resisting the sacred and divine she installs layers of symbol through the modification and manipulation of the flesh, and pursues rituals that transcend the body.
