Descrizione Opera / Biografia
These four sculptures use rawhide as their primary material, which is the skin of a cow and evokes death and transformation.
Driscoll is an artist living in rural Massachusetts. US, whose work in sculpture, installation, handmade paper and photography is based in the body and the physicality of materials. Her interest in somatic experience and sensory perception led to creating sculptures that investigate touch as a way of knowing and making them accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. She collaborates with filmmakers in the US and the UK to project video onto her sculptures, transforming both sculpture and moving images. As a core member of London-based international collective Sensory Sites since 2010, she has created immersive environments, site-responsive installations and participatory performance. Her work has been exhibited in the US, Europe and Asia, and been awarded fellowships from the Massachusetts Cultural Council (twice), New England Foundation for the Arts, Helene Wurlitzer Foundation of New Mexico and Dartington Hall Trust.
