Brian Teeling’s practice explores ways of interrogating the medium of photography through an honest, autobiographical account of his lived experience. The work created often ranges from the context of public space to the innately private, often focusing on the trappings of queer, working-class, and masculine identities. Through his interests in music, cinema, fashion, literature, and activism he examines the purported rituals that can sometimes permeate these communities. The resulting work is translated into various forms; CCTV tubes, projected image, clothing, unlimited edition prints, installation, electronic devices, and full-scale sculptural work for expanded topics.
Teeling is an emerging artist living in Dublin. His practice involves photography, print, and recently, has expanded to include sculpture and installation. His work usually focuses on the trappings of queer, masculine, and working-class identities but has also expanded into architectural photography and recollection of memory. Recent exhibitions include A Vague Anxiety, IMMA, 2019; Halftone, The Library Project, 2019, and Uncover, The Library Project and The Lavit Gallery, 2018. Forthcoming work includes an exhibition at PhotoIreland in 2021 and a book on Áras Mhic Diarmada/Busaras.
