Sharon Murphy is a lens-based artist whose work investigates the boundaries between the seen/unseen, fictive / real, conscious / (sub)liminal. Drawing on a background in theatre and informed by concepts in magic realism and psychoanalysis, recurring motifs in her work include: theatre curtains; carousels; performative sites; embodied / disembodied staged spaces.  

During her residency she will develop a series of photographs based on Parisian Carousels and other sites of performance, using as a starting point Freud’s notion of the uncanny: that class of terrifying which leads back to something long known to us, once very familiar
