Stephen Sheehan lives in Birkenhead, UK. Sheehan is interested in the beautiful, fragile, and transient nature of life.

Sheehan explores those interests through performative actions and film. Sheehan’s work is usually produced in open spaces that are accessible to the passing public. This gives his work a sense of fragility and vulnerability due to the chance of it being disturbed by the human element of curiosity.

In 2016, Sheehan will embark on two month-long residencies. The first residence will take place in April, at Arts Letters in Albany, New York, USA, succeeded by a residence in August, at the Cultural Centre Vanha Paukku in Lapua, Finland.

Stephen Sheehan is a Liverpool Biennial Associate Artist. Sheehan has been paired with Övül Durmusoglu (Freelance Writer and Curator and Director of YAMA screen in Istanbul, Turkey).
