Fix is an exploration of work created by five different Irish artists all positioned at different places creatively and geographically with their work. Collectively these artists share underlying themes of identity and location within their work, each using photography to make connections through captured moments and places, both real and imagined. The common bond each artist shares is the desire to create new work and explore, often without the knowledge of exactly where that work will take them. This exploration is the departure point for this collection.
Each artist has been invited to present images that have emerged through their own practice that somehow did not quite fit into a finished series but resonated in some way that presented an opportunity to experiment. By focusing on these in between moments a new and open narrative is presented that blurs the lines of the photo project, the fixed idea, and celebrates stepping into the unknown.
