The Imaginary And The Synchronous: Working With Accounts Of The says
Using autobiography as the means to explore video performance, participants link an aspect of their life with an object/s that represents this event or characteristic, linking it to a wider socio-political platform.

Irene Loughlin holds an MFA in Visual Studies from the University of Toronto, a BFA from Simon Fraser University, Vancouver and is an alumni of the Ontario College of Art, Toronto. Using a neurodiverse perspective, her practice encompasses performance art, video, sculpture, drawing and text-based work that is informed by feminism and magic and employs aesthetics derived from the history of art and the West Coast of Canada. Working from an emotive perspective, she employs visual metaphors from medical, ecological and historic contexts in order to comment on our contemporary social and political discourse. Loughlin has participated in various solo and group exhibitions including Through a Window: Visual Art and SFU 1965-2015 Audain Gallery, Vancouver (2015), Westbeth Gallery, Transforming Community: Disability, Diversity and Access NY (2015) and The Month of Performance Art, Berlin (2014). She has been awarded the Lynch Staunton Award, Canada Council for the Arts, for mid-career, interdisciplinary practice and a SSHRC Masters Level Scholarship and is the author of numerous essays, articles and conference proceedings.
