we should worry 2015
Conjured from inert and defunct matter, SUZANNE O'HAIRE’s work manifests itself through a series of initiations and metaphorical elements. Arrangements of acrobatically stacked, bundled or tentatively balanced forms are instilled with personal narratives and references from the mundane to the esoteric; however, these need not define the work. What she is curious about is how work may toy or create a tension with how it is read, from say the seemingly flirty to a more unsettling or sinister underbelly.
Suzanne O’Haire works primarily with domestic-scale sculptural assemblage.
She studied at Camberwell College of Arts UAL in 2010 and 1990.
