Máirín Ní Shíocháin’s practice reflects a lifelong affinity with non-human animals. Her observation of animals and birds in natural habitats in and around Ballarat and district was the foundation for this research.

Máirín Ní Shíocháin’s practice reflects a lifelong affinity with non-human animals. Her observation of animals and birds in natural habitats in and around Ballarat and district was the foundation for this research.

The project focussed on the recognition of kinship between humans and other animals and resulted in this body of work which contributes to the current discourse around animals in contemporary art. Consistent with her past practice, the works are all paper-based, demonstrating the versatility of this medium.

This exhibition represents the culmination of Ní Shíocháin’s practice-led PhD research at the Arts Academy, Faculty of Education and Arts, Federation University Australia.
