This exhibition is the result of two residencies by the artist Terry O’Farrell – one a long-term project with older people, the other a short-term residency with young children. For the past two years O’Farrell has been working with St Michael’s Parish Active Retirement Art Group, Inchicore, in the Museum’s studios on a project exploring significant themes from their life experiences. Earlier this year she was invited by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council’s Arts Office to participate in their Artist-in-Residence in Schools scheme, which involved working with a group of 10 and 11-year-old children over a two-month period in the Muslim School, Clonskeagh, and in IMMA, to explore the theme of journeys. The older people’s work, Life, and the children’s work, Two Journeys, include paintings, drawings, photographs and works in clay.
