Kevin Gaffney - A Numbness in the Mouth

A Numbness in the Mouth is an exhibition of new film and photographic work by Kevin Gaffney. The film takes place in an Ireland of the near-future; a self-sustaining, militarized island, where climate change has benefited agricultural production. A spokeswoman for the government- speaking in our popular native tongue- informs us that due to the record crop yield of wheat there is a surplus of flour on the market. Thus, to retain economic balance, consumption rations for bread and other flour products have been issued. Each citizen is requested to consume more than five pounds of flour per day, until advised otherwise.

Kevin Gaffney is a visual artist working in film and photography. He was awarded a prestigious Sky Academy Arts Scholarship for this exhibition and was an UNESCO-Aschberg Laureate Artist in Residence at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art’s Changdong Residency in South Korea in 2014. His work is part of the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s collection and has been shown in exhibitions and film festivals internationally.
