Lyónn Wolf
Residency Announcement

SUMMER 2024

In 2024–5 Flat Time House are partnering with Askeaton Contemporary Arts in County Limerick, Ireland, to present the work of Lyónn Wolf, with an artist residency, public programme and first UK solo exhibition.

Over the past decade Wolf has developed an interdisciplinary practice, oscillating between installation, performance, and experimental workshop formats. Key to their approach has been an ongoing practice of DIY publishing, often done collectively, to traverse queer economies and spatial politics, the lived present and imagined futures. Incorporating auto-fiction and anecdote, Wolf engages a tradition of queer-transfeminist working class vernacular and ethics, finding forms of recycling, thrift and ephemera to pose questions about value, accumulation, and authorship that, in their own words, “posits the imagination as a political tool with radical potential that can exist and erupt anywhere and at any time.”

On Saturday 3 August, a special reading and performance event will occur, details to be announced soon.
