Isadora Epstein writes and makes performances from her research of art history and mythology. Her performances are joyful acts of remembrance which offer up the ridiculous fantasy of immortality through the making of temporary fictional worlds. Living and working in Dublin, Epstein has had performances at Temple Bar Gallery & Studios, RHA, Sirius Art centre, the Royal Irish Academy, the Hugh Lane, and at TULCA. She is a current recipient of the Visual Art Bursary in 2023, was awarded the Constance de Markievicz Award 2019, and received Agility Awards in 2021 and 2022. She recently developed new commissioned performances for IMMA (September 2023), the Joyce Centre (November 2023), and the Mermaid Arts Centre (March 2024).
