ICONOCLAST

126 in association with the Galway Arts Festival present:

Ben Geoghegan, Artspace Artist

16. – 29. July 2012

The exhibition concerns itself with the history of Art and ‘exhibition’ and is not alone among contemporary discourse in this respect, but intends to maintain a level of playfulness and humour that can be accessible, and engaged with popular culture, whether it’s the history and discourse of photography or painting, etc.

Using a variant of Brechtian “alienation” technique, nudgingly reminding us that we are looking at a construct, a staged contrivance, the exhibits articulate diverse ideas and means in order to formulate a poetics of vision confronted with the gaps between reality and representation.
‘It’s all one song.’

Neil Young replied to a fans request for a song.
