“To experience Seers’ work is to experience snapshots, rumours, doubtful information – fascinating fragments that refuse to add up to a neat, narratively satisfying whole. To experience one’s memory of her work is something else entirely. Recall Extramission 6 on a Monday morning, and it’s a story of childhood and exile. Recall it on a Tuesday night, and it’s a meditation on Platonic optics and 19th-century methods of indexing and surveillance. Memory does its work, generating different readings, different histories, and different shapes for the viewer’s future self to adopt.”

— Tom Morton (Frieze 2009)

 …What constitutes the artistic practice of Lindsay Seers is not mere storytelling, but a matrix where there is no formal separation between the conceptual investigation of the act of photography, the camera as apparatus, the common desire for film and photography to act as evidence of events, and the complex historical and personal synchronicities of events themselves. What we are witnessing is not so much a detached systematic outline of these relationships, but the actual unfolding of a creative process, where the act of observation and understanding influences the outcome of events themselves.

Through Seers’ photographic explorations the past is constantly reconfigured, as if it contains an infinite virtual potential for different outcomes, which are all already embedded in one another. Instead of providing a neutral platform for the viewer in the gallery her installations place the film imagery within structures most appropriate to the narrative constructs. These structures are both factual (referring to specific architectures) and theatrical, thereby embodying the dual aspect of evidence and artefact. It is impossible for the viewer to enter this emotional landscape without making their own identifications and associations, without being an implicated participant within the unfolding of history, its apparatuses and institutions as well as its human narratives. The personal and the collective are all but different features of the monstrous unfolding of the virtual event, a spectacle with no singular platform of observation. Her persistant themes of hallucination, schizophrenia, biological chimerism, gender politics and the legacy of colonialism are formed through biography as a framework for larger social, political narratives and in which human consciousness seems to be the fundamental sticking point for humankind to effectively evolve.

Short Biography

Lindsay Seers lives on the Isle of Sheppey with Keith Sargent and Milo.

Our works seek out complexity and innovations both in their forms and methods and are shaped by fragmented and layered narratives interweaving staged and natural speech. Diagnosed with autism (Seers) the works reflect a possible neurodivergent aesthetic related to excess.

Our principle concern is the nature of conciousness itself and how it shapes human life. The stories we tell ourselves are not truths as such but frameworks to justify our actions. Those actions (if Libet is correct) come before thought.

Our works are energetic in and of themselves and not proxies. Shaped by social, political imperatives in content, they often take the form of mulitfacted installations which play off the actual against the virtual.

We have shown large scale works internationally in museums and art centres including SMK (National Gallery of Denmark); Venice Biennale 2015; Hayward Gallery, UK; MONA, Tasmania; Bonniers Konsthall, Sweden; Smart Project Space, Amsterdam; Kiasma, Finland; Turner Contemporary, UK; Tate Triennial, UK; TPW, Canada; Sami Centre for Art, Norway; Centre for Contemporary Art Poland; Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, UK; Sharjah Art Foundation (The Flying Saucer), UAE; Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan; E-Werk, Luckenwalde/Berlin, Germany.

Our works are in a number of collections including Tate collection, Arts Council collection, Artangel collection, collection of MONA, Tasmania, The Government Art collection, MTA Collection, Lebanon and a number of private collections in Amsterdam, Norway, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Paraguay, and Mauritius.

We have won several prestigious grants and awards such as the Sharjah Art Foundation Production Award, UAE; Le Jeu de Paume production award, France; the Paul Hamlyn Award; the Derek Jarman Award; AHRC Award; a number of Wellcome Trust Awards and Arts Council and British Council Awards in support of the works and Seers also received the Wingate Scholarship from The British School at Rome 2007/8.
