“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 eects of mass participation.
