Taking its title from one of the responses to a confidential survey, the exhibition combines the personal expression evident on the walls, floors and other surfaces of the bedroom with participants’ frank, and sometimes, brutally honest written expression of their personal identity. not sorry celebrates the complexities of youth and explores how outward signs – be they adornments to one’s habitat or to one’s self – can both corroborate and contradict inner character. Theresa Nanigian's practice involves creating portraits of contemporary Western life, be it a profile of a single individual, a catastrophic event or an entire country. These representations often borrow the analytical systems, tools and aesthetics of other disciplines such as social psychology, philosophy, economics and logic. Nanigian works in installation, moving image, text, drawing, and more recently, photography. Her most recent exhibitions include Counterpoint at Club Row Gallery, London, Travelogue a public art commission, and Apertures & Anxieties at the RHA Gallery, Dublin. The exhibition not sorry first installed in the Draiocht in Blanchardstown, Dublin, has been especially remade for Highlanes Gallery. Mirroring the wallpaper, posters, magazine cutouts and handwritten messages often plastered on teenagers’ bedroom walls, Nanigian’s photographic images are printed in two forms; the first life size and literally pasted to the gallery walls, and the second in single six foot square panels. The artists’ growing collection of young people’s candid survey responses accompany the prints, providing a heartfelt voiceover to the interior imagery
