Irene O’Callaghan

Irene O’Callaghan is a visual artist and photographer who doesn’t limit her practice to specific media. She works mainly with photography, drawing and text and her artwork sometimes consists of multiple elements integrated into complex art installations. In her photographic works, she is fascinated by the representation of objects and the coincidence of situations, which is reflected in her ontological way of using photography. Her images, by questioning the photographic process open new perspectives of exploration of the subject and the object. She studied photography at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and minor Esthetics at the University of Amsterdam. She obtained a Master Fine Arts at the Sandberg Instituut, part of the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, in 2013.

Irene O’Callaghan was born in 1988 in Boston (USA); she is currently living and working in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
