The Precariat

The RHA Gallery

Dublin

September 7th - October 21st, 2018.

 

My work explores abuses of power in many realms of the social and politicial in the West. Often, taking a Northern Ireland context as a critical point of departure from which to generalise my approach outwards to international concerns. Formally, my work reappropriates tropes deeply invested in the Classical and re-inserts them in the contemporary, aiming to create a conceptual bridge between the Classical 'ideal' (in form/society) and the reality of contemporary post-confict Northern Irish society. The Precariat brings together a suite of work that seeks to investigate the experience of insecurity, fast becoming a universal condition as we struggle to exist in an impoverished and incresingly unstable civil society, in which personal solutions are prescribed to global problems.
