Lisa Freeman is a visual artist working across scripted performance, moving image, text, drawing and sculptural installation. She investigates content from archival material, mainstream media and local knowledge to explore difficult or forgotten histories, representation, and precarious economies of labour. Through employing intimacy as
a form of resistance, Freeman aims to reveal social anxieties along with deeper economic and power structures.
Freeman is funded by an Arts Council Bursary Award 2020 and Kildare County Council, (2021, 2020, 2019, 2017, 2016). Recent projects include; Brows For Days, The LAB Gallery, January 2020 and Green Skies, A Double Rhythm, The Curragh, Kildare, October 2019. She has exhibited and performed site-specifically and in gallery spaces including the RHA Gallery Dublin, Somerset House London, Solas Nua, Dupont Underground, Washington USA.
She has devised and facilitated ‘Collaborative Language-Making’ writing workshops for a variety of contexts and age groups; Ealain na Nog, Dublin City Council, The Young Art Writers Programme, RHA Gallery Dublin and Dublin Learning City Festival 2019 at The LAB Gallery. Lisa co-facilitates Pivot, a performance critical forum, with Astrid Newman based at the LAB Gallery, Dublin.
