Gerard Byrne has created this limited edition print to complement his exhibition Case Study: Loch Ness (Some possibilities and problems), 2001-2011 held at MK Gallery 14 January – 3 April 2011.
The exhibition presented the culmination of ten years of research around the Loch Ness Monster, including photographs, film and audio footage drawn from original sightings of the monster. This limited edition print image stems from Byrne’s original research documentation and is overlaid with three texts which are excerpts from ‘eyewitness’ accounts of the Loch Ness monster.
