Biography

Scott Kiernan is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in New York City. His work seeks alternate readings implicit in images and the technologies employed for their production. In his video, photo and installation works, electronically synthesized and photographic elements interact to address their own (im)materiality and means of distribution. He is particularly interested in how meaning shifts through stages of translation via technology, speech and syntax.

Kiernan was founder and co-director of Louis V E.S.P., an artist-run gallery and performance space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (2010-2012) and of E.S.P. TV (2011-present), a nomadic TV studio that explores televisual language and develops artist collaborations for broadcast. He currently is also co-director of UNIT 11, a transmission based residency program which operates from a former ENG van turned mobile electronic studio.

He has exhibited and performed internationally in venues such as New Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, Swiss Institute/Contemporary Art, Storefront for Art and Architecture, Whitney Museum of American Art, Harvard Art Museums, P.S.122, Mixed Greens, Ballroom Marfa, Southern Exposure, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, and the Center for International Contemporary Art in Rome; and teaches in Hunter College's Integrated Media Arts MFA program.
