Wait it Out was commissioned by Project Arts Centre, Dublin and involved a developmental residency at Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA). The resulting solo exhibition contextualised and problematised the ongoing tensions of the Northern Irish peace process.

The project investigated traumatic memory and its persistent entrapment within everyday objects. It revisited personal and historical archives to raise questions about how political gestures can be reassessed and reclaimed through forms of reenactment. Wait It Out probed the contributions of performance to this area of enquiry by experimenting at the margins of live performance, performance documentation and mediatized performance.
