Neirin is a non-binary artist, writer and disability activist living and working in Vancouver. Their work focuses on the concept of automythology, or self-mythologizing, as a type of parallel life narrative traumatized people create to make sense of our experiences in a private, sacred vocabulary that is protected from outsider retelling, and to crystallize in narrative form the emotional impact of events that, to the person experiencing them, defy ordinary understanding. Neirin is interested in themes of monstrosity, survival, transformation, testimony and truth (re)telling, abjection, ritual, and the body, and works most often in acrylic, ink, and collage.
