Renèe Helèna Browne is an Irish visual artist working across sculpture, video, writing, live performance and exhibition making. Browne is concerned with a connecting space between the fragmentation of art objects and the body in both historical and contemporary art. The artist considers this practice a ventriloquism of art objects, a method fabricated to consider the positioning, voice of, and response to victimhood in relation to physical and emotional trauma.
R69-32 (2017), voice-over video, has been selected for WomenCinemakers Independent Filmmakers 2017. Browne will feature in the WomenCinemakers Magazine in an interview on the production of R69-32 later this year.
