Her interactive installation-cum-performances expose the processes by which culture and identity are evaluated in our techno-globalized era. Myth and ritual merge with pop-cultural tropes, conjuring heightened caricatures of cultures that parody the tourist gaze. By engaging in strategies that foster collaboration and audience participation, Greenan’s work seeks to destabilize ideologies of self and other that underlie our current system.

Brennan on a self-booked and funded 17-date tour of Ireland. According to Dave Clifford, one half of CCP, the film captures the struggles that ensue within an unsigned music scene and the self-motivation required to persevere and survive. He said: “A film like this has never been produced before, thus giving it an edge and making it newsworthy. The tour aesthetic was one of the grassroots DIY graft, with an emphasis placed on pure, honest and stripped back acoustic performances”. The self-funded doc was quite the undertaking, including 6+ months filming, 1 TB of footage and over 500 hours of editing!

Led by Áine Macken-Walsh, the Irish partner in CERERE is Teagasc, Ireland’s Agriculture and Food Development Authority.
