"A ROYAL WEDDING or How To Live Happily Ever After"

By The
collective "Five Eleven Ninety Nine" presented in conjunction with PhotoIreland festival 2011

Featuring work
of Hannah Lucy Jones, Jonny Cochrane, Maria de la Iglesia, Samuel Bland, Simone Massera and Teresa Cos, 51199 has transformed the Back Loft
into a dark, immersive space, with six projections, fortune cookies and a recipe for happiness.

For PhotoIreland Festival 2011, the collective has created a collection of individual projects exploring the human quest for happiness in contemporary Western society. Everywhere people are dreaming of something more and better than what they currently have: aspiring to be more successful, to earn more, achieve more, be loved more – and thereby attain the state of happiness. A Royal Wedding is a metaphor for this very human characteristic. Each photographer has explored this area from a different angle, and the resulting projects use still photography, screenshots, video and sound, in the hope of encouraging reflection on how to live “happily ever after”.
Runs until Saturday 30th July, Daily viewing Monday to Sunday 11am-6pm.
