Yvette Monahan is an Irish photographic artist. She creates visual narratives, which reveal stories hidden deep in living places. In May, Yvette will be showing her turf prints from Beyond the ninth wave as part of The Invention of Memory exhibition for PhotoIreland 2019. In 2018, Yvette created Octopolis for Winter Papers, Ireland’s annual anthology for the arts published by writer Kevin Barry. She was short-listed for the Zurich Portrait prize for The thousand-year-old boy and exhibited in the National Gallery of Ireland. In 2017, Yvette was invited to create and exhibit Beyond the ninth wave, for TULCA Ireland by curator Matt Packer alongside other artists including Yoko Ono and Bob Quinn.
In 2015, her project The thousand-year-old boy won the Solas Ireland Award. In 2013, Yvette won both the portfolio award at PhotoIreland and Slideluck Potshow for her body of work The time of dreaming the world awake. Consequently, she had a solo show as part of PhotoIreland 2014 and self-published a monograph. Yvette holds an MFA Photography from the University of Ulster and an MA Geography from Trinity, Dublin.
