Áine O’Dwyer


To mark the closing of her solo exhibition Crests Break, A Few White Horses and the release of her new cassette box Turning in Space, Blank Forms presents a performance by Áine O'Dwyer at our ground floor space. 

O’Dwyer is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is informed by both the conceptual concerns of sound art and traditional composition techniques, embracing the broader aesthetics of sound and its relationship to environment, time, audience, and structure. She has created works for large-scale and intimate settings that allow for both planned and chance compositions to co-exist in live situ. Recent works include Poems for Daedalus (2018), a series of site-specific performances developed in Athens; the book Poems for play (2018), a collection of scores for a Jesuit monastery; Accompaniment for Captives (Open Ear Festival, 2019), a performance for two fishing boats; Performance for Live Stream (Cafe OTO, 2021), an audio-visual work; and Song of Place (2022) a street opera staged in Bristol suburbia.
