Jonny Lyons at Cleveland Print Room

Jonny Lyons: (Here Come) The Goloshans
Opening Reception: Friday, May 19, 5-8pm
Cleveland Print Room
2550 Superior Ave, Cleveland, OH 44114

Come meet AIRconnect, international artist-in-residence, Jonny Lyons from Glasgow, Scotland and see what he has created during his stay in Cleveland. His work is a direct response from Lyons time in Cleveland, people he has met through street photography, walking the streets and the stories they have shared together. From this sculptural work, he has created and staged short performances within the Cleveland landscape documented with analogue photography.

He has worked at Cleveland Print Room, Zygote Press and Praxis.

Jonny’s practice explores the fragility of friendship and adventure through performances documented by photography and film. He often creates ingenious devices, or functioning sculptures, to execute his ‘hand-crafted mischief’ which are presented – having fulfilled their one purpose – as relics of the event, together with the photographic evidence. But the photographs are not simply documentation of a sequence of anarchic events. They fix the moment between ’cause’ and ‘effect’ and are imbued with wit, melancholy and the physical humour of early silent cinema. In carrying out these processes, collaborations and journeys Lyons attempts to reconcile reckless youth with the pressures of adulthood; these are snap-shots of ‘Lost Boys’ putting their most dangerous, outlandish ideas into practice and – one feels, with some luck – getting away with it.

Special thanks to the Ohio Arts Council for funding this pilot program that not only brings an artist from Scotland to Cleveland but also sends an Ohio artist to Dundee, Scotland for 6-weeks to work at Dundee Contemporary Arts in their amazing print shop. This May, artist Anna Tararova will head to Scotland. This program was also funded through our CPR FOTO BRUNCH fundraiser in Fall 2016. Thanks to all who attended.
