About Karl Burke
Karl Burke is an Irish artist and musician based in Dublin. He has exhibited widely in Europe and North America including The Royal Hibernian Academy, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Hugh Lane Gallery, Project Arts Centre, The Mac, Maria Stenfors Gallery, The Serpentine and The Mattress factory.
A site specific practice of primary concern in the work is the symbiotic relationship between the art object, the space it inhabits and the experiential concerns related to viewership. Subtle but logical sculptural interventions offer the viewer the opportunity to reassess and acknowledge the world that surrounds us. Logic and the scientific, interplay with nature to question space, place and perception, affirming the role of the viewer in the construction of environment. The work endeavours to draw out a certain in – between – ness in the potential in forms of space and place, to assert the present and make concrete the now.
Burke also produces music and has released one album to date called “Electronic Lament”. He has also produced a number of soundtracks for film and theatre including films by Pat Collins namely What We Leave in Our Wake and Silence.
