Event info

'Restore Us And Regain'
Tommy Grace, Ged Quinn, Tony Swain

This group exhibition looked at the ways in which artists utilise archaic landscape, the monument, the ruin, the fortress and other architectural references within their work, to create constructed illusions. By referencing historical detail, or times lost, the works employ contemporary methods to critique and subvert the past. The exhibition title 'Restore Us And Regain', is from Book 1, John Milton 'Paradise Lost'.
