August - September: Kelsey Sheaffer and Joana Stillwell

Kelsey Sheaffer's work is informed by dance and its translation through notation into architecture and sound while Joana Stillwell 's work is informed by everyday phenomena and its translation through gesture and video. Together they will overlap their usually individual practices in a series of evolving multimedia installations, investigating tidal phenomena, walled cities, Boolean logic and the nature of searching. Through sound, video and gesture, they will consider the poetics and politics of attention, space, and time steeped within historical and present day Cork.

August: David Beattie

His work is in a number of public and private collections and most recently was a recipient of the Hennessy Art Fund for IMMA collection, 2016.

Recent solo exhibitions include CCA Derry-Londonderry (2017), Temple Bar Gallery and Studios (2011); The Mattress Factory Art Museum, Pittsburgh and Mercer Union Centre for Contemporary Visual Art, Toronto, Canada (both 2010). Beattie has been included in numerous group exhibitions including TULCA Art Festival , Galway (2017), As Above, so below, Irish Museum of Modern Art (2017), In the Line of Beauty, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2013), O Brave New World, Rubicon Projects, Brussels (2013) All Humans Do, The Model Sligo and Whitebox, New York (2012); Feedback, Galway Arts Centre (2011); Holding Together at the Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin (2010); La Part des Choses, Mains d’Oeuvres, Paris, and in Quiet Revolution, Hayward Touring, UK (2009).

Playfully welcoming new connections between foreign ‘things’, Beattie encourages a sense of curiosity and exploration in the act of displacing quotidian objects. Assembled from a variety of everyday materials the work attempts to provide a framework for assessing our daily surroundings. The interactions between object, space and viewer create a dialogue or wider system in which all elements have a role to play. This process of engagement can be seen as a search for a tangible present through the intermediary moments where physics, philosophy, technology and nature collide.

July: Sooim Jeong 

London based Korean artist Sooim Jeong completed her MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Arts in 2010 and a BA in Fine Art at Kookmin University, Seoul in 2007.

Her work has been included in public and private collections worldwide. She has been shortlisted for the Exeter Contemporary Open in 2017 and also shortlisted for The Marmite Prize for Painting in 2016.

Specialising in oil painting, Sooim Jeong gathers scattered past memories and re-composes them into images on the canvas. She re-locates various unrelated past memories into a current ‘non-special’ place in order to create a new scene. In her paintings all the big and small happenings as well as the brutal and mundane, sit side by side and are recognised with equal perspective without distinction. They are blended into an ordinary scene and provide her with a feeling of relief as well as trepidation.

November 2017: Marisa Hoicka (Canada)

She explores, in a surreal yet pragmatic way, young people’s relationships (or lack of) to labour and love – and their insecurities about gender, sexuality and responsibility. Her work reflects people’s never-ending quest for desire and comfort and to reject the undesirable and uncomfortable. Simultaneously disgusting, beautiful and humorous, her creations bridge these relationships’ fantasy and reality.

Hoicka choreographed a solo as part of Singular Bodies at Toronto Dance Theatre. Her “This is Not a Test” was shown on all Air Canada flights as part of the Images Festival’s “Stitches in Time.” Her videos have also been shown in Berlin’s Galerie Kurt Im Hirsch, San Francisco’s MoMA, Oakville Galleries and across Canada.

An installation was also featured in Videodrome at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art. She had a solo show of her paintings at the department of Canadian Heritage.

The artists would like to meet members of the local community who are interested in discussing "The Future". This may be a personal future, of a profession or trade; it may be the future of Cobh, Ireland, the environment or of our race. What is important? If the world is about to change beyond recognition, what should persist and what should change? What would make tomorrow worth living for? What keeps you up at night?

If you are not able to attend the talk and would be interested in meeting Liz and Kevin, they can otherwise be contacted at

August 2017: Vanessa Daws

Vanessa is a visual artist and avid open water swimmer based in Dublin. Vanessa’s art practice explores place through swimming. ‘Place’ being the watery spaces navigated and swam through, the surrounding littoral space and the social spaces created by this shared activity. Vanessa is interested in why we swim, and how through acclimatisation and adaption we can surprise ourselves and go beyond our expectations.

On September 6th 2016 Vanessa Daws became the first person to swim around Lambay Island in Dublin Bay. This 8k circumnavigational swim took 3.17 hours and was the third and final swim in her project “The Lambay Swim Trilogy”, a series of swims to, about and around Lambay Island. Vanessa uses swimming, conversation, video, sound recordings and drawings to create installation and live art events.

Vanessa has been selected for a 2017 Project Studio in TBGS and has recently been awarded the Docklands Small Grants Award 2017.

August 2017: Lisa O'Neill

Cavan folk-singer and witty story-teller Lisa O’Neill returns to Sirius Arts Centre with a new album, ‘Pothole in the Sky’. If you’ve seen her before you’ll know it’s a performance not to be missed.

This third album follows a witty and charming debut ‘Has An Album’, and the follow-up ‘Same Cloth or Not’ that marked her as a serious artist, a contender, a voice, a forked tongue. These are wonderful songs, unique and full of the sort of glorious individual word-play that could only come from the pen of O’Neill.

Lisa O’Neill has a remarkable voice; a Cavan twang, a growl, a song-call. It can be many things. She needed to make an album about that voice. ‘Pothole in the Sky’ is a recording of “the voice”. The voice is everything for the folk singer – a conduit for the words, the emotion, the thought process. This is no ordinary record.

O’Neill’s voice goes to all sorts of places throughout the course of this album, and the music provided by Emma Smith, Seamus Fogarty, Joseph Doyle, and Mossy Nolan follows her like a dark swirling storm, often bringing to mind the loose impressionism of the Dirty Three. On ‘Planets’ O’Neill delivers her most extraordinary vocal and lyrical performance to date. It is remarkable and on this form she could go toe to toe with Nick Cave at his most fire and brimstone. Except O’Neill’s prose is elemental and mysterious, not angry.  

As any truly great singer knows, it’s not all about those big reaching numbers. There is some truly brave singing on this record. For instance, the odd high-pitched flourishes on ‘Nasty’, or the shrill parlour style singing on ‘Black Sheep’. The latter features some of the best accompaniment too, a mellifluous psychedelic montage that literally sets sail one-minute-thirty in as Lisa goes off on one of her patented hypnotic stream-of-conscious word-play trips. The album closes out on a succession of brilliant songs. ‘The Banjo Spell’ is a tender ode to the aural folk tradition without being throwback. In fact it has a big lush modern feel to it.  And ‘The Hunt’, featuring guest fiddle and banjo from Colm Mac Con Iomaire and Glen Hansard respectively, is just another meandering epic Lisa O’Neill number, twisting and turning and changing its phrasing and tempo to suit the story and accommodate the words. She makes it sound easy. But it’s not.

 At a time when sameness threatens to drain the world of charm and surprise, Lisa O’Neill stands tall for difference, as an outlier with a mission to frame the world as she sees it and to perform it accordingly.

July 2017: Softday

For over fifteen years Softday, the art-science collaboration of artist Sean Taylor and computer scientist Mikael Fernström, have engaged with issues relating to natural cycles in time, climate change and its global effects. As a collaborative team they use their arts practice to explore relations to and understandings of nature, expressed through sonifications and multimedia artworks and performances. Both artists are interested in exploring ‘the cracks’ between various media and creative genres such as expanded theatre, sound art, socially engaged practice, sculpture, music, dance and the application of new technologies.

Early projects such as Bliain Le Baisteach (A Year of Rainfall) (2000) looked at fluctuating annual rainfall patterns in Ireland. Further, Cóisir an Tsionainn (The Shannon Suite) (2003) focused on the four-year life cycle of the wild Atlantic salmon and the effects of overfishing and pollution on the species ability to survive. Projects such as Nobody leaves till the Daphnia sing (2009) examined the implications of contaminated domestic drinking water supplies in Galway and West Limerick. The Marbh Chrois (Dead Zone) (2010) project addressed the impact of two ‘contested’ marine dead zones as a key stressor on marine ecosystems in Donegal, Ireland.  In 2011 Softday were prizewinners of EUROPE – A SOUND PANORAMA, and performed their work in Karlsruhe at ZKM (Kubus).

In April 2013 Softday premiered ‘Amhrán na mBeach’ (Song of the Bees) in Glenstal Abbey, Murroe, Co. Limerick. In October 2014 they were commissioned by Limerick National City of Culture 2014 to perform ‘Amhrán na mBeach’ - Song of the (Urban) Bees.

Petros Chrisostomou

Petros Chrisostomou photographs small-scale, ordinary, ephemeral objects in architectural models that he constructs himself, and then dramatically arranges, often employing lighting and staging conventions of the theatre. With the alteration of scale and reversal of the relationbetween object and environment, between imaginary and real space, his photographschallenge the viewer's visual certainties.

The illusionary effect he achieves highlights theartist's playful approach, which fluctuates between mimicry of the real world and construction of a surreallistic reality.

In his photographs the exuberant assemblage of objects in luxurious interiors, create paradoxical still lifes that parody the traditional memento mori style of the genre. In his worksForever and Skatospore (II), the objects he creates out of Hair, Fungus, fabric and glasses are freed of their ordinary use and become dynamic protagonists. Similarly, the details of the rococo set consist of everyday objects, functioning as contemporary cultural signifiers.

Christosomou's photographs become the field for mixing the high- and the low-brow, mass culture and genre painting, the luxurious and the expendable, as indications of social class distinctions. At the same time, the relations between the real and the imaginary in his oeuvre are a commentary on the mediated images of contemporary mass media that distort the natural and immediate dimension of our relation to reality, determining, among other things, the conditions for viewing and receiving art.

His recent series of works are made with materials collected from stores located in Brooklyn, Afro American hair extensions, grooming products, and Dollar store items. Similarly the environments created to document these objects tell a story –through a lucid observation of Brooklyn’s subcultures- and link a thread throughout the Geographical and social connotations of these works. As a product of Globalization, born in London to Cypriot parents,

Petros Chrisostomou aims to explore the idea of indigenous habitat, by creating these boxes from which to work in, they become symbolic metaphors for a decentralized notion of where we find ourselves culturally grounded, and the spaces that we relate to as home.

Petros Chrisostomou was born in London, 1981. He was a resident on the International
Studio and Curatorial Program, New York. Recent selected exhibitions include FIGURED,
BRIC Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn New York (2012), Plastic Lemons, Spring Projects, London
(2011), Revolver, Galerie Xippas, Montevideo (2010), Artists for Athens, The Breeder/Athens
Playroom, Athens (2010), Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed, The Photographers Gallery, London(2009), In Present Tense-Young Greek Artists, EMST National Museum of Contemporary Art, Athens (2008).


Matthew Noone

Matthew has a idiosyncratic place in the Irish music scene being the country’s only regular performer of the 23 stringed North Indian lute called sarode.

He has studied North Indian classical music for the last 15 years in Kolkata with Sougata Roy Chowdhury and UK based maestro, K. Sridhar.  Since settling in Ireland in 2006, Noone has recorded and performed with various projects such as THE BAHH BAND & JIGGY and more recently begun to make a name for himself as a performer of Irish traditional music.  He regularly performs with percussionist Tommy Hayes in an duet called AnTara and has toured India with Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill.

After completing an Arts practice PhD in the Irish World Academy in the University of Limerick in 2016, Noone took time out to reflect and record some of his original compositions.  

Drawing on his experience of lo-fi rock, post rock and electronica, Noone decided to record the album on an old four track cassette machine.

The resulting sound captures the mixture of his background and presents the sarode in a new and unique context.  The album was mixed and mastered by Ensemble Eriu’s Jack Talty in Lissycasey.

Alex Yudzon

Alex Yudzon is a New York based photographer working primarily in the genre of still life. Making elaborate environments that frequently reference art history, Yudzon’s work confronts our perception that the world has slipped into an advanced state of decadence and decline..

Yudzon’s ongoing series titled “The Book of Tasty and Healthy Food” recreates illustrations from a Soviet era cookbook belonging to his mother. By hand making items that are no longer commercially available, like cans of food, tablecloths and designer plates, Yudzon’s photographs look unreal and act to disrupt the linearity between past and present.

In another series, “The Raft of the Medusa”, Yudzon borrows the language of 17th century Vanitas still life painting to create unnerving scenes of sumptuous decay. Using profuse quantities of food in suggestive combinations, Yudzon creates a world both beautiful and revolting. Hand painted scenes or reproductions of famous paintings are used as backdrops to further emphasize the contrast between the idealized depictions in the backgrounds and the entropic arrangements in front of them. Together, these contradictory juxtapositions lend Yudzon’s work a dark, abject humor which both agitates and moderates our anxiety of collapse through overabundance.

Alex Yudzon was originally born in Moscow and moved to the United States at the age of 8. After receiving his BFA in painting from Chelsea College of Art in London, Yudzon moved to New York and began his career as an artist. Since then Yudzon has participated in numerous exhibitions both inside the United States and abroad including at; The Museum of Contemporary Art Miami, The Aluna Foundation of Art, Ein Harod Museum of Contemporary Art in Israel and the Kolkata International Performance Art Festival. Although he has worked with photography throughout his career, in 2015 Yudzon decided to make a permanent switch and work exclusively in that medium. Since then his series “A Room for the Night” has traveled to 3 exhibition venues in Italy and France.

Sheelagh Broderick (Ire)

Sheelagh Broderick is an artist and researcher. She develops her practice through processes of immersive social engagement. She is interested in the generative potential released when people come together in different configurations. Increasingly she is preoccupied by the idea of the anthropocene (the geological age of humans, named for their planetary impacts) and what it means for politics and art.


Amy Perejuan-Capone

Amy Perejuan-Capone lives and works between Perth, Western Australia, and Reykjavik, Iceland (or elsewhere very very north). She graduated with a BA(Fine Art) from Curtin University in 2009 and an Advanced Diploma of Industrial Design from Central Institute of Technology (Perth) in 2014. She creates work under her label Horse On Toast as well as under her own name. The label is about gleeful absurdity and serves as a conceptual guide for Amy’s creative investigations. She draws in detail very normal inorganic objects (such as trucks and budget supermarkets) as an attempt to capture and represent their innate subjectivity. Amy’s limited edition or one-off furniture pieces, ceramics and drawing/paintings exist on a spectrum that spans ideas made manifest (as sculpture) through to traditional object representation (with plenty in between).



Peter Broderick (1987, USA)

Although he has primarily made a name for himself in the music world, multi-instrumentalist and composer Peter Broderick is interested in exploring a multi-disciplinary approach to his art practice.

Peter’s passport looks like something of an art piece itself, thick with added pages after having run out of free space for stamps several times. Since 2007 he has traveled the world relentlessly, performing both as a solo act and as a member of various groups, including the renowned Danish band Efterklang.

Several celebrated record labels have invited Peter to release his recorded works, such as Erased Tapes and Bella Union, among others. With each recording he has aimed to reinvent himself, resulting in a diverse catalogue that might very well cause a listener to wonder if two different albums are in fact made by the same Peter Broderick.

Many of Peter’s records are decorated with his own photographs and artwork, and he has also experimented with moving pictures, directing several short films and music videos. One of his favourite ways to be creative is in the kitchen, cooking up edible works of art. The fact that the work vanishes while being consumed goes to demonstrate Peter’s focus on the process of creating, as opposed to only being fixated on the result!

Growing up in the tiny town of Carlton, Oregon, Peter started with private violin lessons at age seven, studying both classical music and folk tunes, many of which originated in Ireland. With this recollection of childhood melodies and his own Irish blood, Peter aims to explore his roots through an on-going residency at the Sirius Arts Centre throughout 2016.


Helen Frosi

Artist's Statement

Helen Frosi’s interests revolve around call and response, improvised activity and ludic principles. Preoccupied with the idea and act of exchange - skills, experiences, objects, memories - her practice is cross-disciplinary and necessitates collaboration.

As a conceptual focus for her creative practice Helen established SoundFjord (the UK’s first project space entirely dedicated to sound) in 2010. It began life as a gallery and venue for curious minds to meet and collaborate. By 2015, SoundFjord had metamorphosised into an extended network, educational and curatorial platform, working in purposefully tangential ways, through ideological cross-pollination and experimental collaboration with like-minded creatives, specialists and organisations.

Recent collaborations include co-founding the London-based Tape Orchestra; co-curating curatorial interventions with Kostis Kylimis as Either Ear; hosting DIY audio-visual events with Leslie Deere as Shorts For All Seasons; co-curating the Full of Noises Festival (Cumbria) as Octopus Collectives’ first curator-in-residence and co-curating Summer Club // Sound with Andie Brown (These Feathers Have Plumes) for V22 (London). Under the moniker Postcards from the Volcano, Helen constructs transmission art pieces and immersive sonic environments with Stephan Barrett. And as SoundHoppers, Helen collaborates with Wajid Yaseen to create sound and listening playgroups for 5 to 11-year-olds.

Helen is currently an honorary research fellow at Goldsmiths, University of London (Unit for Sound Practice Research). 


Ruth Clinton and Niamh Moriarty (IRE)

Ruth Clinton and Niamh Moriarty have been working together since graduating from Fine Art at NCAD in 2010. Recent exhibitions of their work include: Amharc Fhine Gall X - Transhistorial Terrain, joint exhibition with Ella DeBurca, Draíocht, curated by Linda Shevlin, 2015; Foaming at the Mouth 6, visual art spoken word event, Amsterdam, curated by Tracy Hanna & Emer Lynch, 2015; Amid the Deepening Shades, self-initiated group exhibition at the Deer Park Hotel, Howth, 2014, and Wound with a Tear, offsite solo exhibition at Trinity College Dublin in association with The Douglas Hyde Gallery, curated by Michael Hill, 2014.

Clinton and Moriarty use performance, video, sound installation and storytelling, along with a detailed research process to convey visions of transience and resistance. Through mimetic acts of communication and repetition, of resurrection and preservation, they interrogate humanity’s struggle against overwhelming natural forces and ask how we can look beyond our limited perception of endurance. They are currently building a body of work to be exhibited after a year-long residency at Sirius Arts Centre.

The opening reception for this exhibition will take place on the first of October, to mark 100 years of Daylight Saving Time in Ireland. Daylight savings was introduced here in 1916, either (according to different accounts) because of World War One and the need for improved fuel efficiency, or to better facilitate telegraph communication and shipping coordination. Before the introduction of the Time (Ireland) Act, 1916, Ireland used to operate on Dublin Mean Time, which is actually 25'21" behind GMT. This lapse is understood by the artists to be comprised of endless missed opportunities relative to the disjointed unfolding of the 1916 rebellion. With this in mind, the exhibition at the Old Yacht Club will be structured as a five-part tragedy that is preoccupied with the lost 25 minutes and 21 seconds of Irish time. The time change is an example of a contested moment in history, much like 1916 itself, and this exhibition intends to explore the multiple layers and consequences of the events as they have been remembered and interpreted in the 100 years since the Easter Rising.

Recently they were awarded the Arts Council 16 x 16: Next Generation bursary. The 16 x 16: Next Generation bursaries are awarded to innovative young artists, in a special initiative of the Arts Council and the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme, in recognition of the role of artists in the events of 1916.

Robin Parmar (CAN/IRE) | May 2016

Robin Parmar combines deep research with intermodal praxis in composition, improvisation, radiophonics, poetry, and image-making. His formal training is in theoretical physics, audio engineering, and electroacoustic composition. He has edited books of creative writing, curated a concert music series, and co-authored one of the first studies of hypertext. Currently he teaches "Acoustics, Psychoacoustics, and Modalities of Listening" at the University of Limerick. 

Robin's work explores generative conceptions of place, ideologies of field recording, and the poetics of spatial relationships. These subjects form the basis for doctorate research at De Montfort University, Leicester. Sound works have appeared in Ireland, England, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Sweden, Slovenia, Canada, and the USA. 

His collaborators have included The Quiet Club, Anthony Kelly, David Stalling, Ed Devane, and Harry Moore. Recent albums include "...between..."

Robin also runs the label Stolen Mirror, which is currently releasing electroacoustic noise music from Irish artists Steve McCourt and Fergus Kelly. 


Elizabeth Woods and Kevin Leong (Autralia) | April/May 2016 

Elizabeth Woods and Kevin Leong are Australian artists whose work sits firmly between community and contemporary visual art: they create projects that develop a rich and sympathetic relationship to the public and host communities whilst producing outcomes that aim to be imaginative, innovative, challenging and critical. Typically, their projects draw on developing creative collaborations between institutions, arts organisations, community groups, individuals, members of the public and interdisciplinary groups of creative professionals.

Since 2012, Woods and Leong have been working on The Homesickness Project, an umbrella project that uses an expanded definition of homesickness to study a time when it is increasingly difficult to be "at home" in the world. In an environment of growing conflict, elitism, scrutiny, fear and displacement, and as pre-industrial global inequality resurfaces with democracy in crisis around a weathered sense of the commons, the project argues that the world is becoming increasingly less of a "home" and that, as a race, we are becoming progressively more "homesick".

The first chapter of the the project was a search for shared visions of home in Logan City, Queensland - a region of extraordinary socio-economically and culturally diversity - while the second chapter, titled Proof of Life, is currently under development with the Salamanca Arts Centre in Hobart, Tasmania. During their residency, Woods and Leong will be investigating the development of an Irish chapter with the Sirius Arts Centre.


Feb & April - Cliona Harmey (IRE)

Cliona Harmey will take part in an ongoing residency at Sirius in 2016 producing a series of new exploratory works. She will explore the link between maritime space and more mainstream communications such as computing and telecommunications. While resident at Sirius she will build on previous work and connect with local organisations that work in this field. Her work is often inspired by contemporary and obsolete technologies, technical histories, contemporary sculpture and DIY electronics. She is also interested in different ways of making elements of ephemeral/ live information/data more concrete or tangible through sculpture, software, film, photography and electronics.

Cliona Harmey has been active as an artist since the mid ‘90s. She graduated from the Sculpture Department at NCAD but now works across a variety of media. In 2015 she completed a major temporary commission for Dublin City Council called “Dublin Ships” which used AIS (a marine tracking technology) to output the names of the most recently arrived and departed ships to large public screens. The changing juxtaposition of the ship names formed a type of generative writing/poetry. She will have a solo exhibition at the Butler Gallery in Kilkenny in June 2016 where she will show some of the work created during residency times at Sirius. She previous showed work at Sirius in 2014 at an exhibition called “We All Live on the Same Sea”. Other recent exhibitions include “The Phoenix Rising” at the Hugh Lane Gallery Dublin, Lacuna at Taylor Gallery and “The Future is Self Organised” in Limerick City Gallery.

March - Leah Beeferman (US)

Leah Beeferman is a New York City-based artist working with digital drawing, video, and sound. She received a BA from Brown University and an MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University, and has participated in residencies including LMCC Workspace (NYC), The Arctic Circle (Svalbard), SIM (Reykjavik), Experimental Sound Studio (Chicago), Kökarkultur (Finland) and Diapason (NYC). Recently, she has shown work at Rawson Projects, NY; Klaus von Nichtssagend, NY; Essex Flowers, NY; Fridman Gallery, NY; Ditch Projects, OR; and Interstate Projects, Brooklyn. She also co-runs Parallelograms, an ongoing online artist project.

Artist’s statement:
'I make abstract digital drawings, videos, laser etchings, and sound pieces: distinct processes linked by interconnected forms and ideas. These works contribute to a larger, ongoing study of digital drawing which seeks to generate spaces of flatness and infinite depth — by merging a very “real” space from my own observation and experience with the nonvisual, imaginary, and intangible space of theoretical physics.'  soundcloud-leahbeeferman

February - Sarah Lincoln (IRE)

Using photography, video and time-based presentations Sarah Lincoln's work seeks out inconspicuous, yet disquieting realities made evident in the landscape.
Her work responds to particular ways in which the natural world has been categorized and managed, her work-processes often usurp mundane forms and gestures.

More recently Sarah has used video as a way to explore local geographies; employing techniques associated with collage to suggest alternative histories – both local and geologic – to dig beneath our surface landscape in an attempt to present a more complex understanding of a locale. Sarah graduated from NCAD in 2004, holds an MA in Visual Arts Practice from IADT and writes for Enclave Review and Critique.

She has worked collaboratively in developing a video project, Faint Echo (2014) and through a screen-based project called RAFT (2013- 2014), which responds to the various uses being made of a patch of Irish ocean.

Sarah's work has been included in Claremorris Open, EVA and as part of numerous group exhibitions, most recently 'The Pattern Exchange' in Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin (curated by Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns).
