Void Visionaries presents : An online talk with artist Christopher Steenson on 7th October at 7pm.
As part of Void’s youth programme, Void Visionaries, we are inviting artists to speak about their practice. The talks are aimed at 14-24 year olds and give an insight into an artist who is working on the island of Ireland today.
We are delighted to welcome Christopher Steenson (@chris_steenson.wav) for the first in the series. Christopher is a Northern Irish artist currently based in Inch, Co. Kerry. Through field recording, analogue photography and writing, Steenson’s practice uses listening as a method of navigating changing elements of our environment and the entangled role of human activity in causing these changes.
Since beginning his artistic practice in 2017, Christopher Steenson’s work has manifested itself as several site-specific performances, sound works and installations. Steenson’s work has been presented by CCA Derry~Londonderry (2021), curated by Locky Morris and Catherine Hemelryk; CCA Glasgow’s Radiophrenia (2020); NCAD Gallery, Dublin (2019); Pallas Projects/Studios, Dublin (2019); EastSide Arts Festival, Belfast (2017); and The Old Jesuit Monastary, Syros, Greece (2019). His tape-based composition Let Me Tell You (2018) was included on compilation sound works, curated by Catalyst Arts, Belfast, and was premiered at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast.
