Noel Molloy: THE DOOR
Performance piece called THE DOOR focuses on isolation and dealing with communication and interaction, and seeking feedback. Noel Molloy in his isolation and anonymity attempts to communicate and barriers become erected personally or externally. The door is a portal yet also a barrier; the artist is communicating through passing personal objects. The performer asks “who’s there?” and there is no reply, but the attempts at communication continue.
Noel Molloy is a visual and performance artist based in Roscommon, Ireland. He earned his Fine Arts degree at the Limerick School of Art and Design in 1982.
