Groundwork presents 'What Is An Apparatus' (2016-2018) an ongoing video work by artist, Sean Lynch.

About

Sean Lynch’s ongoing video work What Is An Apparatus (2016 – 2018) gradually reveals the evidence of increasingly technocratic living through seemingly random encounters with nuclear submarines, postmodern architecture, robots, scrap yards and supermarkets in Europe and North America. Including new footage shot in Cornwall, the work is presented in Helston Museum amongst artefacts relating to the town’s history.

Latoon (2006 – 2015) focuses on the story of a whitethorn bush in Ireland and folklorist Eddie Lenihan, who successfully campaigned to have a motorway redirected in order to save the bush, which he claims is an important meeting place for belligerent fairies of the region.

Supported by Culture Ireland as part of GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain and organised in partnership with Helston Museum.
