Jacqui O’Reilly is a Pākehā artist, researcher and musician from Aotearoa New Zealand, now based in Sydney NSW on the unceded land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.
Jacqui is interested in the creative act as acknowledgement of what has happened in the past and what could happen in the future through embodiment within the more-than-human world. Her practice led research explores relations between people, place, media and perception through the making of installation and performance works. This includes the sculpting of sound and the altering of moving image, as well as practising decolonisation methods as a learning process, to encompass the bicultural history and current day relations between Māori and the settler coloniser in her homeland. jacquioreilly.com
