Where signs and scribblings become inadvertent autobiographical communiqués.

In this exhibition McInerney focuses our attention on signs and scribblings which are often overlooked as we pursue our hurried schedules. Says McInerney:

“I love the human character of certain handmade signs in public places, particularly when microcosmic unintended autobiographies can be read between the lines. Even the tourists’ habit of scratching names in scenic rock can seem like a form of pathetic letter-writing to the world.

These self-memoralisations, proclamations of love, searches for lost companion animals, the would-be selling of labour, sex, eggs and unbroken horses, are like communiqués from otherwise obscure shadow-caves in the borderlands of public life.”
