Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney is a performance artist and graduate of Liverpool John Moores University, England, in 2002. She is currently on her doctorate and researching the body within contemporary arts, science an culture. Her art explores the temporality and spatiality of body politics within the post modern environment and institutional structures.
'My line of enquiry has usually evolved from the critical analysis of socio-cultural and political factors, ranging from fundamentals of the human body, origin, existence and sentience relative to the collective. From what forms our biological edifice comparable to the structure of society and the media semiotics and cultural expressions of post modern life. My work has been both within a gallery context and to the urban space of a city, but other live interventions have transpired in the Louvre (Paris), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Tate Modern (London), the Brandenburg Gates (Berlin), the Little Mermaid (Copenhagen) and so forth. I have had work included in the Performance Art Festival (Cleveland, Ohio), the Liverpool Biennial 2002 and 2004 and other festivals and exhibitions in Tokyo and New York.
