Sean Lynch: “I chose Potcheen for its shady and illicit existence in Ireland.”
Many Irish artist have seen Potcheen not only as a part of history but an everyday life where it still holds a certain stigma, what we can see in the works of Steve Maher’s video and Bob Quinn’s film.
Sean is an Irish visual artist seeking to re-create representations of a past erased from people’s consciousness, yet still existing in a disparate series of objects, events and narratives. He looks for objects that reconciles and enriches viewers understanding of history. Lynch presents these artifacts with a unique perspective and narration, which collides present with the past.
