Fix was produced to coincide with the exhibition of the same nae at Hang Tough Gallery from the 20th July - 3rd August 2019. The book features work from the show; by Ciaran Og Arnold, Cait Fahey, Rich Gilligan, Johnny Savage and Megan Doherty. A sense of place is hard to pin down in the work presented. Locations range from the West of Ireland to the commuter suburbs of Dublin and as far as New York and Japan. Place becomes unimportant, as a collective atmosphere takes hold that blurs the lines of real and imagined and carries the viewer through on a dream like journey. While all artists are rooted in Ireland, each seeks to push and reach beyond so called definitions of identity by subverting or challenging what this means. Underlying themes emerge of longing and uncertainty alongside moments of beauty and celebration. FIX temporarily brings these artists together where their varying practices connect and play off the possibility they each pose to each other.
