Steve Maher is a visual and relational artist from, Limerick, Ireland currently based in Helsinki, Finland. He bases his practice between both countries and has shown his work throughout the North America and Europe. Maher focuses on the relationship between dominant ideologies and subjugation, music and the communities which orientate them-selves around it. Maher’s work makes use of music, its rituals and its cultural artefacts as materials to create pro-jects in collaboration with communities. In these projects Maher implements a philosophy of co-creation exploring the many worlds of creative activity offered as an inherent aspect of music’s production.
