Ronchini Gallery is pleased to present DeLorean: Progress Report, a solo exhibition by Irish artist Sean Lynch. The exhibition is comprised of photographs and installations that take as a starting point the DeLorean car factory, which operated in Dunmurry, outside Belfast, from 1981-2.

Lynch’s practice positions him somewhere between artist and storyteller. He ethnographically reveals unwritten stories and forgotten histories, extracting alternative readings of place, events and artefacts through his work. Sean Lynch explains: “A story can be told and described many times, and it begins to narrow down to a particular narrative and content. I am often drawn in to loose ends and footnotes that occur during this process.”

In the exhibition, a series of photographs trace a path taken to seek out and find the location of the tooling once used to make the body of the car, essentially the formgivers that gave DeLorean its famous profile.
