New Aktionist Llewyn Máire Creates work through live art/ performance activism, sound, movement, visual media, and gastrocculture.
sound – aktion – food
With the gyrl grip, a New Aktionist Kitchen, through solo and collaborative works, Máire seeks to expose, challenge and explore the constructs of identity, the mediation of socio-cultural experiences, and the manipulations of power.
The participation in ecstasis, intimate exchange, and construction of temporary autonomous cultures motivates the work, which strives to create space within which to share an investigation of our struggles and revelations. Moving ever forward in love and rage through inter-independence…
