Hey Liam, Thanks so much for being our first ever Director Spotlight. So for those who don’t know you, can you tell us a little bit more about yourself and your practice?
Hi, I’m Liam. I’m a 25 year old PhD student and electronic musician. In regards to my practice, it consists of composition, sound art and design that explores contemporary electronic music, genre deconstruction, sonic memory, and hauntological composition.
And how long have you been a director here at Catalyst Arts?
Coming up to completing my two years now with my curated sound-art exhibition ‘Resonance’ closing this week.
Can you sum up your time at catalyst in three words?
No I can’t.
What has been the best part of working at Catalyst for you?
As well as meeting some amazing people that I’m sure will be friends for years to come. An amazing part of Catalyst was how much it improved my understanding of my own work due to constant stimulating conversations with many artists outside of my practice.
Any advice you would give to a potential new director?
Play to your strengths, in here they are more valuable than you may think.
Finally, would you recommend a Directorship with Catalyst Arts and why?
I would highly recommend a directorship. As well as the great people you will meet because of Catalyst, you get a chance to fully immerse yourself in the running and programming of a gallery that has had a 25 year-old tradition of exploration in art and you will join a long-line of directors that have contributed incredible amounts to the art world.
Liam’s Director’s show Resonance runs until Thursday September 5th 9pm with a special closing event Catalyst Audio Tracks on Saturday September 7th.
