Satellite exhibition in the Lord Mayors Pavilion, Fitzgeralds Park. 3rd – 12th October Thurs, Fri, Sat.
The internalisation of shame is a topic that is widely undiscussed in Ireland. Archives of Shame not only shows the toxicity of shame but gives a way out of regret and remorse that lingers on in the psyche. Following an open call, artists were asked to put forward their own response to the internalisation of shame.
This Archives of Shame takes on several manifestations of undue shame through the body, sexuality and the necessity for touch. It is a personal and international image of shame.
Artists and Poets included in the exhibition are as follows:
Amber Agha, Lorraine Cleary, Paul Mac Cormaic, Yiota Demetriou, John Erwin Dillard, Helen Dredge, Lorna Jewitt, Ernestine Louise Johnson, Sinead Mongon, Frank Prendergast, Courtney Sharos.
