Very pleased to welcome Irish artist, composer and performer, Áine O'Dwyer, for a three-day residency spanning folklore, fluxus, and a one-off, one-off performance in Stoke Newington Old Church making use of the church organ. O'Dwyer has assembled a tantalisingly diverse line-up of artists across three days, including Irish author, storyteller, lecturer and broadcaster Eddie Lenihan; Welsh-born and London-based writer and filmmaker Iain Sinclair and a uniquely convened group of local musicians.

Áine will also be screening some of her early action based performances in the Project Space. Her early performance work was often unannounced and staged in public spaces. More details TBA.

Áine O’Dwyer whose recent double album of improvised organ music, Music for Church Cleaners vol. I & II, is a modern minimalist magnum opus of the highest order. With a background that combines Irish traditional music and contemporary performance, she has created a multi-layered, exploratory, and experiential work that begs questions of historicism and the social proximities of the everyday, as well as the presumed nature of records themselves.” – BOMB Magazine – BOMB Magazine
