The Metronome Bursts of Automatic Fire… is a new storyboard installation by Sven Augustijnen for The Hugh Lane’s Artist as Witness 2016 exhibition programme. It is an allusion to the light automatic rifle – the F.A.L manufactured by Fabrique Nationale de Herstal, in Belgium. The installation consists of a display of TIME and LIFE magazines and RTÉ archival material that evokes how both weapons and journalism have been entangled in the fabric of our histories.
