Frank Sweeney – Few Can See
2nd September 2023
EVA International at Belltable
A screening programme of works by Irish & international artists as part of the 40th EVA International held at Belltable featuring Few Can See, 2023 by Frank Sweeney followed by a discussion panel on 2 September 2023.
Broadcasters across these islands have entered into a blackout strike. The workers are transmitting a programme bringing censored voices back onto the airwaves.
Few Can See examined the legacy of broadcast censorship of the conflict in the north of Ireland and political movements during this era. The project attempted to recreate material absent from state archives due to censorship, based on contemporary oral history interviews.
Frank Sweeney is an artist working with film and sound who lives in Dublin (IE). Sweeney has presented work at public arts institutions and galleries including Centre for Contemporary Art, Derry-Londonderry (NI), the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (IE) and Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, Dublin (IE).
Few Can See, 2023 was an EVA Platform Commission for the 40th EVA International – Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art.
