Amanda Dunsmore filmed a new video portrait of Christine to accompany the sound installation, photographs and publication. Video portraiture has been an artistic methodology developed by Dunsmore over 16 years as part of her ongoing art practice, which involves artwork documents of key moments in recent Northern Ireland history and its political figures. These intimate silent video portraits developed by Dunsmore are based on the artist’s interest in re configuring the boundaries of portraiture. Dunsmore further questions what constitutes portraiture by making a video portrait of Christine outside her home in rural Galway; a home she self-built for her family. Christine's ongoing and remarkable journey to full self-realisation and the bravery of this act, make her a true pioneer. ‘Every time I go outside my front door it’s a political statement.’ Christine Beynon, Interview 2012.
