Molloy’s practice embraces painting, performance, film and sculpture as a way to explore what it means to have a human body today. Currently Molloy’s work is paying particular attention to the physical world as she creates performances with objects, such as caress- ing rocks, or seducing cactuses. The work questions our relationship with objects and how through physical movement, moments of love, tenderness and lust can be induced, even with the inanimate. Human behaviour, our relationship with the physical world and how we exist digitally and physically fuel the work that Molloy makes.
