This is my artist statement
“The goal of a mass telecommunication culture is psychoanalysis in reverse. It’s that the little, last remaining parts of that garrison [of consciousness] become unconscious. It’s precisely to reverse that process of enlightenment. Mass culture is enlightenment in reverse gear. Precisely to wipe out that last little garrison of autonomy. It is a constant assault upon it.” If Rick Roderick was right about this, then the sacred duty of the artist is clear, to counteract the forces of mass media and in the process create garrisons of autonomy, of awareness, to talk it out. How precisely, I just don’t know, but I aim at least to try. Seanán Kerr is an artist who works mostly with film, but sometimes installation.
