SEAN LYNCH: THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD
Sat 14 May 2016 - Sat 02 Jul 2016


Artists in this exhibition: Phil Frankland, Vincent Hawkins, Peter Lamb


Sean Lynch
The Weight Of The World

This exhibition of new and recent video installations by one of Ireland’s leading contemporary artists takes place across the adjacent sites of the Phoenix Gallery and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery.

Lynch forensically investigates anecdotes, hearsay and half-truths, unearthing marginalised stories that have been overlooked or fallen by the wayside. He forms them into evolving, alternative arrangements of history that aim to open up new understandings of our world.

The exhibition features the UK premiere of Adventure: Capital, the projected video element of Lynch’s show (of the same name), which represented Ireland at the 2015 Venice Biennale.

It also includes three new artworks that are directly informed by artefacts from RAMM’s collections, including The Vermiculation of Exeter, in which Lynch highlights examples of architectural stonework from the streets of Exeter, drawing our attention to possible symbolic and historic readings. Another work, Latoon, draws together themes of Irish folklore, motorway protest and the power of the media.

A new publication to accompany the exhibition, with an essay by Joanne Laws, texts by Sean Lynch and designed by Wayne Daly is also available in the gallery.

This project was initiated by contemporary visual arts organisation Spacex, Exeter Phoenix and RAMM.

The Weight Of The World is supported by Arts Council England, Exeter City Council, The Henry Moore Foundation, The Elephant Trust, and The Foyle Foundation.
