MATTHEW O'SHANNESSY



Matthew O'Shannessy's Majorca show, Systems of Paradise, featured three large-scale photographic studies of destroyed work environments. Offering a harsh contrast with the types of offices associated with everyday business, these photographs explored the destitute and decayed nature of spatial constructions when they are abandoned for greener pastures. Collapsed ceilings, broken windows, and leftover tools allowed a loose narrative to inform these postmodern-aesthetic works.
