Gerard Byrne
Born in 1969 in Ireland
Lives and works in Dublin, Ireland        CV
--------------------------------------------
Gerard Byrne’s work touches on questions about the way history is constructed in and through our media-dense society. The starting point is material from the 1970s till today, such as ads, articles, theatre productions and films. The selection is turned into new pictures, combinations and paraphrases in the form of films or installations, where he often works with professional actors or filmmakers. The works shed light on the conventions and codes that make up pictorial narratives and show the intricate web of cross-references and chains of associations in image culture. Through the selection of images he connects to contemporary history, with images that form the basis of our collective consciousness.
