PAUL EACHUS
In Paul Eachus’s installations and photoworks we are presented, perhaps even
propositioned by a series of events, something has taken place, is about to take place or is
in the process of taking place. Each event then is in process, not static but in a moment of
becoming, it is in this sense transitory; it is unstable. This state of affairs is further
complicated by a seeming lack of awareness between events. This space lacks any sense
of rational coherence and fails to account for the events going on within its parameters. This
is not however a chaotic, out of control situation but one in which the boundaries of things
are traversed in order to propose new relationships, relationships formed between unlikely
partners.  It evokes Deleuze’s notion of ‘delire’, the ‘straight furrows’ fixed by society’s
processes of categorisation and the channeling of things into their bracketed places are
ruptured and the perverse and the irreconcilable are given the space to form new dialogues.
