Cove Park’s international programme expresses our commitment to supporting established international artists and creating ways in which these individuals can engage with artists, organizations and audiences in Scotland. Previous international visual arts residents include Jumana Abboud, Abraham Cruzvillegas, Takahiro Iwasaki, Matts Leiderstam and Jan Verwoert.

Based in County Limerick, Ireland, Sean Lynch works in a manner akin to an historian: his projects reflect on the representation and methods of articulating idiosyncratic moments of the past. This process considers instances mostly eradicated from popular consciousness that yet exist through a disparate series of objects, events and narratives, swaying between the anecdotal and objective-informative.

At Cove Park, Lynch will develop a new body of work to be shown in the Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin, in 2013.
