I will be launching my online exhibition, In Mid-Ocean, on 1 July 2021. This work explores the Irish diaspora from the female perspective, drawing on the family archive - the photographs, letters and anecdotes from my mother’s time in England. These records and a photo album in my mother’s drawer mark my first exposure to this other life lived elsewhere. My mother’s images document the transnational life my parents led from the 1950s. Based in London, but longing to return home, their life was lived in mid-ocean, journeying back and forth across physical and cultural space.
To coincide with the launch, I will be publishing a book of the series. Details of how you can visit the exhibition and purchase a book will be published here shortly.
