Niamh Seana Meehan

Artist Intro

Niamh Seana Meehan is a visual artist based in Northern Ireland. Working in-between visual art, performance and written matter based on the slippages involved within the translation of thought to text. Her practice investigates the unknowability of language, its messiness and how to has the potential to become visual, performative and moveable. Themes include emptiness, silence, ambiguity and doubt.

Niamh Seana has performed and exhibited both nationally and internationally, recent projects include UK New Artists Common Interest residency, Catalyst Arts Propagate workshop, CCA~Derry~Londonderry DeMo reciprocal residency and HOUR Bergen International Performance Festival.

Niamh Seana will utilise the DAS Home Residency to develop a new series of audio work, that aims to investigate; what does it mean to listen? What happens when we fall out of listening? Who is the listener? Combining two aspects of her practice, sound and text, she will research and create audio, that will present listening as a space of in-betweenness and by doing so she hopes to provoke, disrupt and stray the listener.
