Black Box: Gerard Byrne

From October 16, 2013 — February 16, 2014

Society’s desire to believe in something otherworldly can transform the banal—branches, rock formations, and mist on the water—into variations of a creature, the Loch Ness monster, both ominous and oddly endearing.

Gerard Byrne uses film and photography to explore the way that we develop this collective fantasy in selections from his on-going project Case Study: Loch Ness (Some possibilities and problems). Byrne infuses his work with wry humor as he explores how people see what they want to see rather than what is there.
