Deirdre Mulrooney is an emerging Irish artist, living and working in Berlin.
Raised working-class in a small nation dominated by Catholicism and men, she now lives as a teacher, a mother, and an artist discovering the joy of playing with taboos and visions of female identity that would until all to recently have seen her locked away.
Her projects span visual art, film, storytelling and theatre.
Her influences are a long list—basically any woman who ever did a damned thing worth doing.
“My work is a place where my joy in creativity as a woman is wholly my own and ungovernable. Through the pain and sometimes even the unspeakable, there are no limits. As women, we contain it all.”
Growler is a 78-year-old vulva from the inner city of Dublin. She is an alchemist, she transmutes women’s pain through storytelling, singing, and poetry. She loves her few smokes, drinking cocktails, and has a tongue like a lash.
Her use of media follows the iconography of identity, mishmashes of cheap paint, gold leaf, sound, and theatre.
