Selected by the pupils from Room 13 Inquiry, in association with Draíocht, Ground Floor Gallery
More than Bricks and Mortar: Works from the IMMA Collection, the Irish National Collection of Modern and Contemporary Art, has been selected by fifty pupils from Room 13 Inquiry, two school-based artist studios at Scoil Bhríde Cailíní NS Blanchardstown and Tyrrelstown Educate Together NS, in association with Draíocht. The exhibition reveals personal, deeply felt and multi-layered experiences of what ‘home’ means to a new generation of children living in Dublin 15, itself characterised by a young, diverse and multi-ethnic population. This exhibition is presented as part of HOME two distinct yet related exhibitions focusing on the theme of home.
Also showing at the same time is Carrier of Memories by Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske; Draíocht’s inaugural INCUBATE commission, curated by Sharon Murphy. Carrier of Memories is a multi-media installation which explores various notions of home as a place of belonging, privacy, shelter and transition. It is the product of the artists’ own personal family histories as well as research and practice undertaken during their recent residencies in Draíocht (INCUBATE Studio Residency) and Nordic Artists’ Centre Dale (Norway).
HOME is shown in the context of Draíocht’s major theatre initiative in October 2018, HOME THEATRE (IRELAND), funded by the Arts Council’s Open Call.
