This collaboration between the Goma Gallery of Modern Art in Waterford and The Source Arts Centre, Thurles presents the work of Wexford Artist Mick Fortune who uses video, photography and installation to investigate the relationship between individuals and the spaces in which they exist. With reference to pre-narrative cinema, Jungian psychology and Mythology and the unstructured nature of events, the work intends to allude to the presence of the camera as a mere coincidental event in a recurring cycle of decay.
With a strong emphasis on lighting, Fortune enables the figures to merge into their surroundings, as events seem to unfold and a sense of foreboding is heightened. As a result of this the performers exist in a sense of suspended animation, drifting through the space which takes significance above their existence. The show features several new works from 2017 and is curated by Jenna Whelan and Sandra Kelly of Goma.
