Sean Lynch | 5 May - 3 June
A Groundwork exhibition
Helston Museum, Market Place, Helston TR13 8TH
Free admission, no booking required
Including new footage shot in Cornwall, Sean Lynch's video work 'What Is An Apparatus' initially appears to be a collection of somewhat ludicrous encounters with nuclear submarines, postmodern architecture, robots, scrapyards or supermarkets, but it gradually becomes apparent that Lynch’s stories are generated as a result of living in an increasingly technocratic world. By contrast, his film 'Latoon' focuses on the story of a whitethorn bush in Ireland and folklorist Eddie Lenihan, who successfully campaigned to have a motorway redirected in order to save the bush, which he claims is an important meeting place for belligerent fairies of the region.
Lynch's work is presented in the old school room at Helston Museum, amongst collections of artefacts from the town’s working history.
This exhibition is organised by CAST in partnership with Helston Museum as part of the Groundwork season of international art in Cornwall from May to September 2018. Supported by Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain.
