About me

Sorcha Boyle is a graduate of Manchester School of Art where she attained a First Class Honours degree in Photography. Her installation Selkie was exhibited in group shows Alwaysallwaysland at Holden Gallery, Manchester and Transmission at Brick Lane Gallery London in 2014. Selkie is a diptych video piece based on the idea of the fragmented narrative in art and literature. Using sound and projection the installation creates an immersive experience for the viewer.

In addition to her work as a practicing artist, Sorcha has also gained facilitation and curatorial experience in arts organisations in Derry and Liverpool. One of her main focuses is on audience participation and widening social engagement with the visual arts. In February 2017 she independently facilitated the multi media women's art project 28 which engaged women artists in developing a group show focused on the subject of 'Border' over a 28 day period. 28 culminated in the exhibition Border in Void Gallery Derry. Sorcha curated the work of 25 female artists across disciplines for International Women's Day 2017.

Since moving to Liverpool in 2017, Sorcha has been commissioned by OUTPUT and Liverpool Irish Festival to respond to the successful repeal of the 8th Amendment to the Constitution of Ireland, resulting in the video diptych Idir dhá uisce: Between two waters. This piece sets voices of Irish women against a diptych filmed at Lough Foyle on the Derry/Donegal border, exploring the idea of the female body as contested space, subject to the governance of different states.
