Lives and works in Dublin (IRL)
The core of Amanda Coogan’s practice is durational live performance. These live events in turn feed into a body of video and photographic works. Coogan’s pieces have been seen at festivals including the 2003 Venice Biennial and the 2004 Liverpool Biennial. In 2009 she presented her seminal durational performance, “The Fall”, over 17 days at the Whitworth Gallery, Manchester. In the same year, Coogan curated Accumulator, the first live performance-based exhibition in Ireland at VISUAL, Center for Contemporary Art, Carlow. She was awarded the Allied Irish Bank’s Art prize in 2004.
