Born in 1971 in Beaver, Pennsylvania, USA.

Lives in New York.

 

Amy O’Neill delves into American and Swiss folklore in search of subjects which she instils with a disturbing power. Inspired by an abandoned amusement park, ‘The Old Woman’s Shoe’ is an original work commissioned by the national public commissioning programme for the Printemps de Septembre.
 

Amy O'neill also shows The Granddaddy of them all at the Centre d’art contemporain Chapelle Saint-Jacques.

 

What does the festival’s subtitle “Here where I am doesn’t exist” do for you?
Amy O'neill : An idea inspired by geological time versus the mental space, a disparity between the eternal and temporality.
