Jonny Lyons: Dream Easy
6 February 2016 until 26 March 2016
Lyons’s practice explores the fragility of friendship and adventure through performances documented by photography and film. He creates ingenious and mischievous devices which are presented – having fulfilled their one purpose – as relics of the event, together with the photographic evidence. The photographs, however, are not simply documentation of a sequence of anarchic events. They fix the moment between ‘cause’ and ‘effect’ and are imbued with wit, melancholy and the physical humour of early silent cinema. In this process Lyons attempts to reconcile the enthusiasm of reckless youth with the pressures of adulthood; these are snap-shots of ‘Lost Boys’ putting outlandish ideas into practice and (just) getting away with it. Lyons was born in 1988 and since his graduation from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2013 he has received several residencies and awards. He lives and works in Glasgow.
