Jane Garland, Egress

 

 

Jane Garland, Fable

The Screen prints ‘Egress’ and ‘Fable’ are from a series based on Garland’s interest in the literary and visual traditions of using animals as metaphors for human society. In Aesop’s Fables the fox is frequently depicted as being at odds with human efforts to order the environment and to exclude those not part of the consensus. The fox abides close-by on the margins, despite its lack of a recognised useful identity or permission to access our controlled spaces. The prints began as black and white photographs shot in the Phoenix Park and arrived at their present form via the darkroom work which is an important part of Garland’s process.
