Sue Rainsford is a writer & researcher based in Dublin.

Her practice is concerned with hybrid, lyric and embodied texts, explicit fusions of critical and corporeal enquiry, as well as with experiences that alter our understanding of flesh. A graduate of Trinity College and IADT,  in January 2017 she completed her MFA in Writing & Literature at Bennington College, Vermont. She is editor of the limited edition publication some mark made, and recipient of the VAI/DCC Critical Writing Award 2016/17. Recent projects include Entirely hollow aside from the dark, a site-specific, psycho-acoustic installation made in collaboration with Alan James Burns.

She is currently in residence at IMMA as part of Freud Project 2016-2021, collaborating with Bridget O’Gorman to respond to Lucian Freud’s assertion ‘I want the paint to feel like flesh.’
