Lyons’ three month residency at PICA will act as the catalyst for a new direction in her artistic practice. Having a preoccupation with the gallery ‘wall’, the artist recently realised that she was ‘unable’ to conceptualise a work which did not have a direct dependency on bricks and mortar! During the residency Shannon plans to step beyond this vertical comfort zone and devise a series of structured experiments to overcome her ‘fear’ of the floor.
