An audio/visual exhibition by Bernie Masterson with accompanying publication in collaboration with residents from Mountjoy Prison Campus.
‘Incarceration Altars’ investigates the relationship between person place and object through a series of images and prisoners’ narratives to contextualise the different worlds of prison identity and private identity. Objects provide links to those identities and are also used to reflect on other themes such as ‘mourning and memory,’ ‘transition and passage,’ ‘meditation and new vision,’ and how they serve as a marker in a significant life situation such as incarceration. The objects become an instrument, a channel of emotional connectedness to a vast structure of recollection involving thought, feeling and memory
