Sam Keogh


Sam Keogh (b.1985, 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, 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, histories and affects begin to smudge into each other until a sticky cognitive map of the present begins to emerge.
Sam Keogh is based between Glasgow and Co. Wicklow, Ireland. He received an MFA from Goldsmiths College in 2014 and completed the Rijksakadmie residency in Amsterdam in 2017. His work has been exhibited at Primary, Nottingham: Goldsmiths CCA, London; Museo Madre, Naples; Centre Pompidou, Paris; 15th Lyon Biennial; The Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin and Eva International, Limerick. In 2024, he will have solo exhibitions at Well Projects, Margate; St.Chads, London and Atletika Gallery, Vilnius.
