St Carthage Hall
Sean Lynch’s curated exhibition interrogates how landscape is constructed, improvised and bargained with. What are the attitudes at play that underpin human relationship to the environment, and how can allegory and narrative form be utilized to free us from the increasing neoliberal encounters that constrict such encounters? Particular references in the exhibition include tax-dodge building in Ireland, particular works of conceptual art, Pugin’s Catholic fundamentalism, antiquarian watercolours and more. Sean Lynch will represent Ireland at the 56th Venice Biennale.
