Aideen Doran's practice traverses moving image, sound, installation and writing. Doran works with materials, images and texts already existing in the world, unravelling and re-combining materials to create dense, multi-layered works that weave a series of new connections between seemingly unrelated materials.

Recent solo and group exhibitions include: In/Action, Santa Maria della Scala, Sienna, Italy (2018), Lavish and Judicious, CCA Derry-Londonderry, UK (2018), Bone Meal, The Hidden Gardens, Glasgow, UK (2018), Lux Salon, Lux, London, UK (2018), Catalyst Commissions, Catalyst Arts, Belfast, UK (2017), Coppice, Verge Gallery, Sydney, Australia (2016).

Aideen Doran / Women Sitting at the Machine, Thinking
We’re delighted to launch a new version of Aideen Doran’s sound work, Women Sitting at the Machine, Thinking, with a new essay.
