'An Empty Plot of Land' - video installation 2015
'An Empty Plot of Land' - video installation 2015
Steadman’s interest in narrative, memory and abstraction lends his work an ability to cross art mediums creating installations in a configured space, while the content instead is often an abstract, fractured, fragmented series of experiences. His latest video works are focused on the illusion of a space, be it public, private, inside, outside, personal, political, safety and violation. From a domestic space, to a family home full of secrets and memories, to the shared confined public spaces like an elevator or public transport. Spaces caught between time & history, absence & presence, existing in a state of suspension, from a space of shelter to a space of threat.

Recently steadman's subject matter is focused on the centrality of memory, and the articulation of memory as a mutating system functioning within a set of larger cultural and environmental systems. The exploration of subjects claims for solitude and social belonging are themes steadman expresses across a range of practices and present in works that are structurally concerned with time, space and duration.
