Róisín Anne Jenkinson is a visual and live artist, poet and curator. She has poetry published in numerable anthologies and has self-produced books, including her most recent book Within Nature (2018). She has exhibited work in Dublin and Cork and performed in a variety of places, including La Biennale di Venezia (May 2017). She has curated both literary and performance events since 2016 and written several reviews for inaction.ie.
Róisín’s last project began as a series of café exhibitions entitled Everything has its place. They are intended to continue discussions on our political climate regarding immigration and integration and what it means to belong. Each exhibition also had its own specific focus and invited you to rest and reflect, and support independent cafés.
Róisín is currently running Creative Collective Community: a group for Artists and Creatives to come together and support one another; to be a Community of Creatives. She is also hosting a Christian Women Writers fellowship group for women in their 20s and 30s, and she is curating annual fundraiser performance events for Clowns for Haiti.
Róisín conveys and reflects on themes of belonging, acceptance, identity, where we come from and strength in vulnerability. Common motifs throughout her work include light, nature, and the spiritual. Her work is meditative, reflective and transcendental as she creates from a place of rest and brings clarity, empathy and understanding through her words. She also enjoys collaborating with other artists and is interested in the point where intention and intuition meet.
