“Continue Reading” : A Journey Through Sound, Movement & Technology



Continue Reading by Tadhg Kinsella is a sound exhibition exploring disability and queer identity through sonic discovery and experimentation. The exhibition and associated events will run from 2 to 4 May 2024 at The Complex Gallery.


This is the first solo sound exhibition by Tadhg, an internationally-recognised, award-winning live electronics musician, composer and classically trained percussionist. Dyslexic and non-binary queer, Tadhg advocates for accessibility and inclusivity in their work, actively participating in the Irish arts and queer scene.


The title of the exhibition comes from the dread of being asked to "Continue reading" in school. Embracing the advantages and disadvantages of dyslexia, Tadhg focuses on the tactile engagement of electronic music through analog and digital hardware to offer a visceral understanding of the condition. The installation and performances deal with communication through spatial and sonic interactions throughout.


Segments of the exhibition delve into the exploration of queer identity, celebrating diversity and individuality. Through aural storytelling and immersive soundscapes, the installation creates a safe space for self-expression and reflection. Drawing on various musical influences and sonic textures, it embraces the multifaceted nature of queer

experiences. Through these thematic explorations, the audience is invited to engage with sound on a deeper level, fostering empathy, understanding, and connection.


Launching on the evening of Thursday 2 May, Continue Reading will feature a ticketed live performance with contemporary dancer Nick Nikolaou on the evening of Friday 3 May, and will close on Saturday 4 May with a ticketed solo audio visual performance by Tadhg. The sound installation will be open to all on the afternoons of Friday 3 and 4 May.

Supported by the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme, funded by Arts Council Ireland and managed by Arts & Disability Ireland, with support from The Complex and Unit 44.
