Lismore Castle Arts: The Mill

23 March – 19 May 2024


Carolina Aguirre (b.1990, Chile) is an Argentinean artist based in London. Her interdisciplinary practice spans painting, sculpture, writing, and video. For The Mill, she will be creating a site-specific installation. Aguirre's mythopoetic works question the experience of belonging as it relates to location, nature, and otherness through a psychological and anthropological lens. Belonging is chosen as an embodied and emotional access point to wider themes of environmentalism and identity politics resulting from mobility. The practice is guided by materiality, spirituality and tenderness.

Having lived in Chile, South Africa, Egypt, and Wales, Aguirre graduated with a BA in Graphic Design from Central Saint Martins and worked in the film industry before transitioning into a full-time art practice. She is a graduate of the MA Painting program at the Royal College of Art (2023), where she was a recipient of the Ali H. Alkazzi Scholarship Award and the 2022 Kyoto University of the Arts Exchange Programme. She has exhibited in London, Paris, Munich and Kyoto.
