Holly Márie Parnell

Holly Márie Parnell (UK/Ireland) is based between Ireland and London and works with film, installation, live video performance and sound.

Taking a documentary approach, the work by Holly is led by personal encounters to extract subtle yet powerful truths of an embodied knowledge and a lived experience. Built from collected fragments of the everyday, her practice explores how — through layers of authority — the meaning is made and ordained. At Rupert, she will be editing a new film; a collaboration with her family, the project explores how through personal, bureaucratic and economic layers of care a human life is measured and valued.
