Selected Commissions:

  • TransARTation, 2017
    I participated as part of collective of artists, poets, linguistics and translators to make a response to the overarching theme of Translation. Performing at St Andrews, Scotland and Norwich, England.

TransARTation was a touring exhibition that opens up a space for local communities to explore ideas about translation, movement, migration and art in a variety of ways. The aim was to foster community involvement to investigate how translation stimulates and provokes the production of text-objects and works of visual art. To make visible the kinds of conversations that can occur between different cultures, languages and modes of expression.

 

 

Selected Collaborations

  • ‘Alive In The Universe’ a collaboration with artist David Earey to create a short video performance responding to the theme ‘What does it mean to be alive in the universe’. This collaboration was chosen to be featured, along with other artists works, as part of a sister exhibition for the 2019 58th Venice Bienalle.
  • M A : R O S S: A formed collaboration between artists’ Samuel Ross and Antonis Maros. In this collaboration we were interested in investigating themes around  codependency, coexistence, power and authority through breathing as a means of communication : 2017-present.
  • “Beyond Depression”: A collaborative work between artists’ Samuel Ross, Yeon-Woo Kim, Hannah Mary and Antonis Maros exploring the relationship between of abandoned, broken objects and the body and how it can reveal an often intimate and delicate relationship between a person and depression which is often unseen in this way : 2018.
  • “Environmental Conditioning”: A collaborative work between artists’ Samuel Ross and David Earey investigating the relationship between the individual and their environment through creating intimate and yet a separate space which presented a division between the  individual (the artist inside the space) and their environment (audience) : 2015.
  • “A Midsummer”: A collaborative work by artists’ Samuel Ross and Rory Flynn examining the Shakespeare play ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’. In their performance they were interested in exploring the identity crisis which was a prominant theme throughout the play. In their interpretation the two artists were presented in a room standing on two separate wooden boxes and wearing another one on their heads. They moved in a circular motion around the wooden box,  as both a separate and also as the same entity. This action was repeated until one of them randomly brakes the sequence which resulted in them to reclaiming their own individuality again : 2014.
