Club Solo organizes a series of lectures together with residents from the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten (Royal Academy of Visual Arts) in Amsterdam. In these letures, the artists tell about their work in relation to their residency at the Rijksakademie. It is then up to the artist to approach another resident to give the next presentation. Adam Ulbert recommended Sam Keogh for the sixth lecture at Club Solo.

Sam Keogh (born 1985, Ireland) works with installation, sculpture, performance, drawing and collage. In recent work his installations are built to facilitate a performance which morphs sculpture into props and collage into mnemonic devices or surfaces to be read as a half improvised pictorial script. These works aim to produce an intimate encounter with a grotesque extrapolation of a recognizable image, figure or myth. Over the past three years, the subject of his work has included Sesame Street’s Oscar the Grouch, a 2000 year old Irish ‘bog body’, and the story of the murder of Gianni Versace.
