Deirdre asks Nina about how motherhood has affected her life as an artist and what drives her to create.

We talk about the system vs our idealism in regards to our life dream or sense of safety.

The social ideals of ‘You will succeed’ vs ‘How do we save’ or ‘how do we give’…and why the hell is plastic not banned already?

Also, individualism vs collective connectivity and the idea of taking responsibility.

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.
