This edition is part of a series of three, produced on the occasion of Ian McKeever's exhibition Against Architecture at Matt's Gallery from 09 February–19 March 2017. The exhibition features a selection of works from two recent series, Eagduru and Against Architecture (both 2012-13), which combine painting and photography. The installation is an exploration of how the fragility of pictorial illusion subsists amid a world of contingencies. In a contemporary visual culture in which images come cheap, the effect is to reestablish our sense of them as fugitive, mysterious and hard-won.
