James Ó hAodha


James Ó hAodha [O-Hay] (b. 1985, Wexford, Ireland) is an interdisciplinary artist based in Dublin. Graduating in Sculpture from NCAD in 2009, Ó hAodha has continued to develop a socially engaged practice, working for the most part beyond the bounds of the exhibition space. Interested in the creation of encounters, his work often takes the form of intervention, performance/action and exchange, with a shared focus on how temporal encounters and site-specific work can inhabit and intersect with the space of the gallery. Ó hAodha has been involved in projects with The Lab, Dublin; Dublin City Council; Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray; The Joinery, Dublin; The Drawing Project, Dun Laoghaire; Fringe Festival, Dublin; Resort, Donegal; Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff; Irish Museum of Contemporary Art; and Tulca, Galway amongst others.

Ó hAodha is currently a member of The Good Hatchery, Co. Offaly, and was shortlisted for the 2013 Wexford Emerging Visual Artist Award.
