Doug Fishbone: Please Gamble Responsibly
Cork City, Co. Cork
25 May - 29 August 2021
Artist Doug Fishbone's first solo exhibition in Ireland, commissioned by the Crawford Art Gallery, takes the form of a sculptural spectacle - mirroring the housing and rental market - and invites visitors to wander around his ‘ghost estate’.

Doug Fishbone is an internationally renowned artist who creates projects and exhibitions which unearth, question and examine societal misconceptions through humour and manipulation of context.

In his first solo exhibition in Ireland, Fishbone creates a sculptural spectacle - mirroring the housing and rental market - and invites visitors to wander around his ‘ghost estate’.

Replete with broken windows, boarded up balconies and surrounded with shabby corrugated fencing, it offers more than an abandoned, half-built interior: inside, Fishbone presents a free-wheeling examination of property and value, two notions which are repeatedly conflated to toxic effect by our global economic system.

Part of the Cork Midsummer Festival programme 2021.
