RUA RED is delighted to present the solo photographic exhibition Skene by Darek Fortas.

‘Skene’ – Skene is a word taken from ancient Greek and literally means ‘structure that supports the background in theatre as well as seeing and exposing’. Over the course of last year Fortas has been photographing contemporary versions of Skene - structures which are crucial for plays, or performances to happen, but remain invisible to public.

This exhibition is kindly supported by Artful Dodgers Imaging.

Fortas’ photographs have been widely exhibited both nationally and internationally. He graduated from Fine Art Photography MA at Royal College of Art (2016) and BA (Hons) Photography at Dublin Institute of Technology (2011). Fortas is a recipient of Arts Council of Ireland Visual Art Project Award & Travel and Training Bursary, Culture Ireland’s International Culture Programme Grant, Adam Mickiewicz Grant and Royal College of Art Fine Art Bursary. In 2014 he became recipient of the Camera Clara Prize initiated by Paris based Foundation Grésigny and was also short-listed for MAC International Art Prize. His work was published in Irish Arts Review, Source Photographic Review, British Journal of Photography and L’Oeil de la Photographie and variety of on-line photography blogs and magazines.
