Aoife Casby


Aoife Casby works as a writer and visual artist. She recently completed a PhD at Goldsmiths University arguing for hybridity in creative practice and creating a language-based installation considering the book as a four dimensional phenomenological experience. Aoife’s current work considers material language and those relationships between land, word, image and object.  She is having fun developing a multi-layered, bi-lingual engagement with our natural and cultural heritage, in the places where fields, the sea and people interact: creating object and sound language-based installations. Imagine standing in an unused field: imagine all the lost conversation and necessary ritual. She is using materials of the seashore, words and local knowledge to explore ideas of ritual, history and how our fields are shaped and shape us. Her work is held in both public and private collections. Aoife has received bursaries from the Irish Arts Council, Galway Co. Council and was selected to attend the Kelp Congress as part of Lofoten International Arts Festival, 2019.  Aoife’s short fiction and poetry is widely published and she is currently finishing a collection of short stories and a novel.
