About Aunna Moriarty

I am a multimedia artist working primarily with photography, video, and performance. Influenced by mental health issues and feminine archetypes, my practice is often reflective of my own personal narrative as a woman living with Bipolar and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. I use fashion and set design to aid in a performative-response to human temperament and frequently perform in my own work. Allowing me to gain agency as a character, this theatrical approach offers an out of body experience that gives me access to work through my everchanging moods, sleep patterns, and fears of being a woman with mental illnesses. My work is currently moving towards themes of grief and transgenerational trauma on a collaborative and social scale.

Education
