London, Paradise Row, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin: People In Trouble Laughing Pushed To The Ground, February - March 2011
London, Saatchi Gallery, Out Of Focus: Photography, September - November 2012
"People in Trouble Laughing Pushed to the Ground (is) another series born out of conflict. This time, Broomberg and Chanarin have utilised found photographs from the Troubles in Northern Ireland (…) But here, too, history – and photographic history – intervenes. There are pictures of children running, girls dancing, men crying, infants sleeping, but there are also pictures of soldiers on patrol, teenagers rioting and young men and women in black berets and dark glasses. The bigger picture is hinted at, but not overstated or dramatised the way it would be in a book of straight photojournalism. In these random fragments, the mundane and the ominous sit side by side. Speaking as someone who grew up in Northern Ireland, albeit a decade earlier, I was reminded once again of that overlooked aspect of the Troubles: the constant sense of absurdity that attended normalised life.”
