Aisling Keavey

Aisling Keavey is a London and Dublin-based curator, photographic artist and researcher. She is currently undertaking a Masters by Research in photography at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Dublin, Ireland. This practice-led project is concerned with female members of the Irish diaspora living in England. The women were photographed and interviewed about their experience of being Irish in London, their reasoning for emigrating and their thoughts about what home means to them. Using moving image and photography, as well as archival images and interviews, she aims to subvert how Irish women are represented. She has presented at various international conferences, including the the Women’s History Association of Ireland, British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference and the Limerick Postgraduate Research Conference. She is influenced by media culture and theory, audience perception and reactions, archives, conflict history, the emigrant as “other”, the Irish experience and personal history.
