Sculptures become props and collage becomes backdrop as Keogh unfolds a story about eating a pig in Stansted airport.

The performance is part of Keogh’s exhibition Sated Soldier, Sated Peasant, Sated Scribe, (17 Sep-12 Dec) an installation of ceramic sculptures and collaged paintings on paper, that draws on pre-modern motifs and myths of abundance.

This event will take place outdoors, outside the gallery’s main entrance.

BIOGRAPHY

Sam Keogh (b. 1985, Co. Wicklow, Ireland) works across collage, drawing, sculpture, performance and installation. In recent work, Keogh has built intricate environments in which live performances unfold. These installations incorporate collage, small sculptures and found objects which spillover with idiosyncratic detail and extraneous information; shifting 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 College in 2014 and completed the Rijksakadmie residency in Amsterdam in 2017. Recent exhibitions include: Cosmopolis #2, Centre Pompidou, Paris; Knotworm 15th Lyon Biennial; Integrated Mystery House, Eva International, Limerick; Kapton Cadaverine, Glasgow International; Orbital Debris, 1646, The Hague; Eurocopter EC135 Dortmunder Kunstverein, Germany.
