Ruth Clinton and Niamh Moriarty use performance, video, sound installation and storytelling, along with a detailed research process to convey visions of transience and resistance. They are currently building a body of work around the introduction of Daylight Saving Time to Ireland in 1916 in order to engage the public in a critical examination of contemporary Irish society.
Recent exhibitions of their work include: Foaming at the Mouth 6, visual art spoken word event, Amsterdam, 2015, curated by Tracy Hanna and Emer Lynch; Amid the Deepening Shades, self-initiated group exhibition at the Deer Park Hotel, Howth, 2014, and Wound with a Tear, offsite solo exhibition at Trinity College Dublin in association with The Douglas Hyde Gallery, curated by Michael Hill, 2014.
Ruth and Niamh have developed and exhibited over twenty projects together since 2011. They were awarded a Digital Media Residency from Firestation studios in 2011 and an Arts Council Visual Artist's bursary in 2013. Ruth Clinton graduated from the Master's course Art in the Contemporary World at NCAD with a first class honours degree in 2013. Both artists received a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art from NCAD in 2010.
