HIGH VIS: Protest, People and Power in a time of Fake News

"HIGH VIS: Protest, People and Power in a time of Fake News" is a solo exhibition by Penny Byrne that builds on a significant body of work that the artist has been developing since creating "iProtest" in 2012 In this highly relevant and ambitious exhibition, Byrne applies her keen sense of politics to interrogate, through sculptural and installation practice, whether individuals have any true agency or ability to determine ‘truth’ when it is has become intertwined with subjectivity and sentiment and blurred by fake news and the effects of mass participation.
