This exhibition at the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork 2002, was an exploration of found images through drawing, video and installation, with references to nineteenth century and contemporary art. The images are not chosen at random, they are linked by their iconic status and political references. They are assembled, not with a view to presenting answers, but instead, to set up an open-ended dialogue between the artwork and the viewer.

This work shows what appears to be documentation of a wall drawing in the gallery space at the Triskel Arts Centre, but the installation never existed. The drawings are based on paintings by James Barry. This work is about the relationship of the viewer to the exhibition space, and the historical context of the exhibition space in relation to art history of Cork.
