New work by Brian Duggan
20 March – 12 April 2008
Brian Duggan will be presenting new work for this solo project at G126. Duggan’s practice continues to re-examine the role and function of the individual. By arranging at times illogical actions, the artist tests boundaries and rules that make up lived experience. Familiar landscapes are reconsidered in relation to stress that is unrelenting but hidden. Tension in the ordinary brings forth real and imagined anxiety and also physical practical problems.
