Galleries: Ambitious project set for top Venice exhibit

Adventure: Capital: Sean Lynch, Golden Thread Gallery, Great Patrick Street, Belfast. Until October 16, Tues-Sat 11am-5pm

By Elizabeth Baird

This exhibition launches the international tour of Ireland's entry into the 56th Venice Biennale, the world's most prestigious visual arts exhibition.

Commissioned for Ireland from artist Sean Lynch, this is a multi-faceted and complex installation which attempts to trace the journey from myth to minimalism around Ireland and Britain.

Possibly Lynch's most ambitious project it combines a huge number of different elements from Greek river gods to a traffic roundabout. Through all of this Lynch also concerns himself notions of value and the flow of capital as well as the contemporary architectural and social environment, looking at it all through an anthropological lens.

A free publication, Adventure: Capital, with a text by Woodrow Kernohan, is available.
