Published by the 2013 graduates of the BA Photography course at Dublin Institute of Technology, this zine documents the work of Kristina Collender. Sean-Bean-Nua (Old-New-Woman) is an exploration into contemporary Irish female identity. Using self-portraits, the face of the artist is stripped away and replaced with an intervention that interrogates and questions her supposed Irish identity. Using varying modes of intervention the ‘new’ face within the portrait becomes a strange testament to the artist’s beliefs. Stripping herself of any facial recognition the image within the image creates a new narrative, questioning all contexts from which it once came and represented.
Photography becomes one of many mediums of exploration used in this body of work. The portraits result in an intrinsic visual language, which represent the artist’s own experiences, hopes, fantasies, memories and fears of being a woman living in Ireland today.
