Joey Oâ€™Gorman is concerned with contemporary posthumanist discourses that trace the deep interpenetration of disparate spheres - from social to geodynamic and evolutionary to mystical. In multiple media he grasps at the elusive forms of vitally compenetrating ecologies and the impossibly complex topologies of affect. Environmental collapse, social depredation and economic absurdity frame a call for solidarity with others and resistance to the gathering spectres of authoritarianism and accelerationism. Biography Joey is a PhD researcher at Ulster University, where he is investigating unorthodox methodologies of spatial enquiry. He graduated from the Belfast School of Art MFA Fine Art programme in 2018 with distinction. He is currently undertaking a residency at Platform Arts and has enjoyed a recent residency at the Digital Art Studios as well as a graduate award mentorship with Artist Moving Image Northern Ireland. Before relocating to Belfast in 2015, Joey was a research associate with the MA Art and Science programme at Central Saint Martins in London. Previously he worked as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Ludwig Institute after completing a PhD in Pathology at the University of Oxford.
