And Not But

And Not But

Wile walking to the Sligo Art Gallery to install a show I noticed a wall covered in fly posters. I decided to take part of the exhibition out of the gallery – creating a intervention that was ephemeral and celebratory of its environment. Based on  aspects of advertising -being targeted, ambiguous campaigns and of the self help industry offering vague advice and assurance.

Advice to change one thing, distilled to three simple words (and not but), being told again and again.   A quick and easy attitude adjustment, instantaneous psychological adjustment and gratification

Having the answer but not knowing the question.
