Garry Loughlin: Power, narrative and territory

2023-08-29 – Feature

Territory, Power

Garry Loughlin is an Irish artist based in Bristol. He is known for a research-driven approach to his work, which seamlessly integrates photography, writing, and archival material. His interests lie in the use of power, and the control of narratives and territories. Loughlin is driven by unearthing micro-histories and the discovery of elements that can link a series of events that might initially seem isolated. Working with photography allows him to employ the language of documentary to challenge the perceived authority of the indexical image and its role in the distribution of history.
