Eothen Stearn

Janus head series, 2018-ongoing, Photographer Angelica Falkeling, Courtesy of the artist

Eothen Stearn’s art roams between the intimacy of personal relations, the detail of everyday life, music, feminism, queerness and science fiction. Eothen is interested in craft, memory, emotions and modalities of speech. Within Eo’s practice a space is made to dissemble hierarchies, so to look into the conditioning of bodies. The work produced questions social responsibilities and the intersections between private and pubic. Her practice incorporates sculpture, performance and sound, which although appearing different from each other in their materialities and temporalities, they are made of the same attitude; one that looks into everyday politics.

Part of Eo's practice is playing in bands where naturally, collaboration is key. Eo plays drums and keyboards in bands “2ply” in Glasgow with artist/musician Mark Briggs, and “Difficult” (NL based) with Irish and Scottish visual artists/musicians Tracy Hanna and Kari Robertson. 


Eothen has a MA from The Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam and a BA from Goldsmiths University, London. In between these two she worked for Andrea Zittel in Joshua Tree, California and attended the UK art educational protest The School of the Damned.
