artist

Sam Keogh is an artist based in London and County Wicklow. In recent work, Keogh has built intricate environments which host live performances. These installations incorporate collage, sculpture, and found objects which spillover with idiosyncratic detail and extraneous information such as objects and surfaces which shift between artwork made by Keogh, props used by the performer, and ambiguous technologies made by the characters in the universes he constructs. In this indeterminate space, materials, memories, and affects begin to smudge into each other until a sticky cognitive map begins to emerge.

Keogh received an MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London, London in 2014 and completed the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam in 2017. Recent exhibitions include: Sated Soldier, Sated Peasant, Sated Scribe, Goldsmiths CCA, London; Cosmopolis #2, Centre Pompidou, Paris; Knotworm, 15th Lyon Biennial; Integrated Mystery House, Eva International, Limerick; Kapton Cadaverine, Glasgow International; Orbital Debris, 1646, The Hague; and Eurocopter EC135, Dortmunder Kunstverein, Dortmund.
