Lynch’s artistic practice 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’s exhibition brings together a collection of sculptures, photographs, and prints, each pointing to how our environments are brought into being, shaped and understood. As the exhibition title suggests, not everything goes according to plan. In Lynch’s world, the technocracy and progress of our contemporary time is a flawed notion, and he sets out to locate moments of poignant resistance to its dominance. Infrastructural mistakes, environmental campaigns, unreliable figures of Irish construction labour and seemingly out-of-control trees all spur on his narratives and investigations.
