BASIC TALKS ~ Suzanne Walsh
The Hugh Lane Gallery
Basic Space is delighted to present Suzanne Walsh for our April BASIC TALK.
Suzanne Walsh is a writer and artist from Wexford currently in residence in Fire Station Artist Studios in Dublin. She uses performative lectures, audio/musical performances, recitations and text in various manifestations to query ideas around human/non-human relationships and consensus reality, often drawing on the scientific world as well as more esoteric sources. Recent work uses appropriation of texts from various sources including diaries, Facebook groups, historical poetry, nature documentaries and scientific texts. She often collaborates with other musicians, filmmakers and artists as an actor/performer and vocalist, including Vivienne Dick and The Experimental Film Society, and moves between the literature, music and art world. Her work also includes editing work and she has published essays, reviews and poetry in publications such as Critical Bastards Magazine, Circa Art magazine, Fallowmedia and gorse journal. Recent exhibitions and performances have been at venues including Phoenix Institute Brighton, Sion Stables in Tyrone, IMMA, Galway Arts Centre, The Model Gallery Sligo, Mountains to Sea book festival and The International Literature Festival amongst others.
BASIC TALKS is a series of talks with leading contemporary practitioners, taking place at The Hugh Lane on the second Friday of every month. Curated by Basic Space in partnership with The Hugh Lane, BASIC TALKS is a platform for lectures, workshops, presentations, and performances. Speakers include artists, curators, writers, and critics who will generate discourse on producing, framing and exhibiting art. BASIC TALKS is a collaboration between Basic Space and The Hugh Lane, exploring alternatives in the dissemination of contemporary art and its discourses.
