Suzanne Walsh is a cross-disciplinary artist. She works across art, writing and music, often combining the forms or collaborating with other artists. She has published in gorse journal, on Fallow Media and in Circa among others. She performs both with text and music and was part of a recent commission in the Lab Gallery A Different Republic. She is part of sound group ‘Hissen’ who performed in IMMA in 2016. Her work draws on editing, poetics, human/animal interactions and questions on consensus reality.
In 2017 she was selected for an IMMA ROSC50 Commission alongside collaborators Christodoulos Makris and Nathan O’Donnell. Their collective proposal – Inflammatory Speech – is a research programme and subsequent performative event in response to Rosc. It is devised as a collaboration between three practitioners working at the intersections of contemporary art, poetry, and writing. Inverting Rosc’s subtitle – ‘the poetry of vision’ – they propose an alternative ‘vision of poetry.’
They will create a repository of material from the Rosc archive from which they will shape several original poetic texts for performance. This may take the form of a multivocal or polyphonic performance; a sort of choral call-and-response with poetic texts and music overlaid to create a meshwork of sound.
