Paul Rooney (Apr - Sep 2015)
Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Art Festival are pleased to announce Paul Rooney as their second artist in residence.
Paul Rooney creates sound, video and text works that focus on the instabilities and deceptions of language and narrative, particularly in relation to how they represent 'place' and the historical memory that haunts it.
Currently based in Liverpool, Paul studied at Edinburgh College of Art. From 1998 to 2000 he released three music albums as the band ‘Rooney’, featuring in John Peel’s Festive Fifty as well as recording a session for the show. Since then he has continued to make sounds, videos and texts with recent solo exhibitions at the Liverpool Biennial, Outpost Norwich and screenings at the ICA and Whitechapel Gallery in London.
