Brian Duggan,

'They've tried everything to keep us from the end we always win' 

12th October - 22nd November


In this tantilising exhibition, Brian Duggan presents new work, work that has not been seen in Ireland and work that has come in from the outside.

Duggan engages people in questioning the myriad decisions of the everyday, where he twists experience and materials to check the actuality of lived experience.

Problems, crisis and mistakes, the inherent risks of choosing an activity or choosing inactivity are an ongoing focus for his projects.
