Sally O’Reilly – Whitechapel Writer In Residence 25.05.12

Sally O’Reilly was writer in residence at the Whitechapel Gallery between 2010-2011. Her residency consisted of a variety of events – a beach for writers and readers in a nearby park, a virtual periscope displaying messages from artists around the world and a 3-sided football match played by members of the three main political parties on the run up to the general election. Her video essays are currently on display, along with her in progress novel Crude, which she updates daily via fax machine print-out [perched on top of the monitor set-up – print outs cascade into a pile on the floor].
