Simon Burch — Under a Grey Sky



Simon Burch
Under a Grey Sky

Past: November 9 → December 17, 2010

Made over four years, the work explores the rain-soaked peatlands of Ireland’s central plain, the most intensively industrialised landscape in the country. Simon Burch captures the distinctive textures of this unique area, revealing hidden surprises. Although the landscapes are vast and empty, they are intensely marked by human activity. Geographically, the work concerns Ireland but conceptually, it addresses global concerns about depletion of natural resources, ecology and sustainability of communities.

Curated by Tanya Kiang (Director, Gallery of Photography, Dublin), this exhibition coincide with the 30th anniversary of Mois de la Photo, an event that celebrates Paris as the world capital of photography in November.
