“McGibbon O’Lynn’s joint venture, Xenophon: Re-birth and Re-verse (2017), offers a kinky inter-species getaway, complete with headphones, folding garden chairs and a fountain view” CIRCA Art Magazine, Jan 2018
“Siobhan McGibbon and Maeve O’Lynn’s Xenophon Project combines sculpture, sound, and scientific research to imagine an alternative future for the human race in the form of the Xenothorpeans, a fictional post-human species enhanced through medical engineering” RTÉ, Oct 2017
“ McGibbon’s brilliantly weird Xenophon: Museum of the yet to come, Artefact: Xenothorpean leg (2017) is a wax model of a tattooed limb, complete with webbed foot and claws. Drawing on the Xenophon Project, a collaboration with Maeve O’Lynn, and the artist’s CúRAM residency at NUI Galway, it imagines a future in which humans have adapted, bio-engineered, shaped and perfected our bodies to suit both fashion and the changing environment” Irish Times, Sep 2017
