Exhibition by eighteen year old photographer documents the Irish world of skateboarding
‘Callum’ by photographer Alex Sheridan captures a skateboarder using Ireland’s trophy from the Celtic Tiger years, The Samuel Beckett Bridge, by world renowned architect Santiago Calatrava as a ramp, while the vacant Anglo Irish Bank headquarters which led to the demise of the Irish economy can be seen in the background.
DUBLIN.- The outdoor exhibition space Art Lot Dublin is exhibiting ‘Youth Culture’ by Alex Sheridan.

Alex Sheridan is an eighteen year old photographer whose work documents a part of Irish youth culture which emanates from the world of skateboarding. Presented as part of the PhotoIreland Festival, Youth Culture exhibits Sheridan’s images scaled to the size of billboard advertisements and installed around the hoarding of this unique outdoor exhibition space in Dublin.

Art Lot Dublin was a project established in 2013 to transform a derelict site into a platform for exhibiting contemporary art. Co-ordinated by curator Jonathan Carroll and funded by local businesses the space is located beside The Manhattan, a former well known late-night diner at the junction of Harcourt Road and Richmond Terrace in Dublin City Centre. For his exhibition Sheridan’s installation takes the form of black and white images printed bill board size and may be viewed as echoing the photocopied punk fanzines of the 1980’s pointing toward an ongoing tradition of DIY-aesthetics originating from youth subcultures, while at the same time reinforcing notions of irreverence, graffiti, and the skateboarding attitude of occupying and subverting public space.

Exhibition Curator John Kenny says “The PhotoIreland Festival has grown to become one of the highlights of the county’s cultural calendar, it creates an important space for dialogue. Ireland has not been in a good place the last few years and Sheridan’s work unwittingly captures many of the nation’s current anxieties, empty car parks, derelict shop fronts, the vacant Anglo Irish Bank headquarters on the Quays, his work is as much a documentation of Dublin in this moment in time, as it is of the youth who occupy it“.

Alex Sheridan ‘Youth Culture‘ runs from July 1st – August 31st, 2014 as part of the PhotoIreland Festival at Art Lot Dublin, Outdoor Exhibition Space, Junction of Harcourt Road and Richmond Terrace, Dublin 2.
