MULTI MEDIA EXHIBITION
VICTORIA GALLERY & MUSEUM, LIVERPOOL

Above: "To Reach a Port We Must Sail" 2021-22 Media: canvas, acrylic, collage, gold leaf Dimensions: 507cm x 202cm
From Cork to Shanghai, Dubai to Alexandria, Gunn explores what it means to travel, its impact on memory, its historical weight, and its power to heal or corrupt us. Globalism in terms of commercial trade but also human experiential exchange, is at the core of these works.
With a portfolio spanning painting, collage, sculpture, installation,
performance and VR, Gunn’s practice is constantly evolving to
match the ebbs and flows of her subject matter.
Encompassing panel discussions, public workshops, an immersive
digital installation, an AR pop-up trail, and guided tours, Gunn’s
vision is to bring her art and its satellite discussions to as many
people - and in as meaningful a way - as possible.
Gunn was born and raised in the city centre of Cork, graduated
from Crawford College of Art & Design, and spent a post-graduate
year at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts Supérieure de Nancy. She has
exhibited across Europe and China, and has won multiple awards
for her work from Arts Council England, Arts Council Ireland, and
Culture Ireland. Gunn lives and works in London.
