The State We’re In (2016)

The State We’re In was a three person group exhibition at the Mart Gallery in Dublin in 2016, one hundred years after the signing of the Proclamation of the Republic and the Easter Rising. Each artist provided a critical commentary on the current state of inequality in Ireland, while referencing the unfulfilled aspirations of the 1916 Proclamation.

My work focused on homelessness and comprised of three sculptural installations which consciously referenced the Dada movement, in the use of collage, assemblage and found materials. Also exhibited were a group of paintings, each a work in its own right, which gave visual expression to contemporary and past housing, income and wealth inequalities.
