How to Live Here is a visual arts project that asks questions about the artist’s desire to return to rural Ireland as a queer woman who once left in search of community. Navigating current identity within a context that is at once familiar and distant, Doody explores her relationship to the land and its traditions through photography, text and holographic video.
