About

The built environment is politics made concrete – the physical representations of political ideologies given physical form. Euan Lynn’s work highlights this political underpinning behind architecture, reactivating its latent political intent by bringing it to the fore.

Working across various media, including photography, electronic sound and installation, Euan’s practice grounds itself in historical research, identifying ways in which the pasts of our buildings can be confronted to speak about our present. In doing this, the politics of a space can be subverted or reinstated, removing us from the neoliberal metropolis and providing us with an alternative approach to our cities.

The strands of Euan’s work weave together threads of constructivism, psychogeography and high and low cultures colliding to produce a vision of an environment shaped, but not limited by, the ideals of 20th century modernism, and suggests ways of reclaiming the original radical, utopian spirit of these spaces and artworks.
