Samuel Brzeski (b.1988, London) is an artist and writer based in Bergen, Norway.
Samuel works with language as raw material—moulding, stretching and transforming physical texts on screens, on the page and within speech sound. In his work, he explores how digital culture has reprogrammed our relationship to language, and the emotional impacts of this ongoing process.
Samuel holds a BA in English Literature from University of Sheffield (UK), an MA in Fine Art from Bergen Art Academy (Norway) and participated in the Mountain School of Arts program in Los Angeles (USA). Recent exhibitions and performances include Lydgalleriet (Bergen), Bærum Kunsthall, The Norwegian National Museum (Oslo), bb15 Space for Contemporary Art (Linz), Meta.Morf—Biennale for art and technology (Trondheim), Galleri Box (Gothenburg), Studio 17 (Stavanger), Chao Art Centre (Beijing), Østre, KRAFT (Bergen), Bergen Kunsthall and Black Box Theatre (Oslo).
Additionally, Samuel co-runs the art-writing collective and publishing platform TEXST, and publishes writing of his own on various platforms. He was writer-in-residence for Lydgalleriet 2020-2021 and was a resident art writer with Contemporary Art Stavanger 2022. His forthcoming collection of interdisciplinary writing will be published by Lydgalleriet in 2024.
