Sean Lynch’s exhibitions at the Ronchini Gallery London, John Hansard Gallery in Southampton and at the international contemporary art event Groundwork in Cornwall feature a selection of his recent and new artworks, spanning video, photography and sculpture.
Lynch’s artistic practice, as seen at prominent presentations such as the Venice Biennale and Modern Art Oxford, focuses on storytelling, specifically unwritten narratives and almost-forgotten histories. He pieces together oral histories and anecdotes to create new content to memorialise the often forgotten small stories which link and bind communities and the shape of society. With a keen interest in the offbeat and marginal, Lynch points to the technocracy and progress of our contemporary time as a flawed notion, and he sets out to locate moments of poignant resistance to its dominance.
