The Bystander Effect, Alison Lowry         

5 August – 9 September 2021

Golden Thread Gallery is delighted to announce Alison Lowry’s upcoming exhibition in the Project Space, The Bystander Effect.

The culmination of two years of research, The Bystander Effect examines the role that we, as a society, had in allowing an ‘architecture of containment’ to develop in Northern Ireland. Within the exhibition, the term ‘architecture of containment’ describes the physical infrastructure and systems used to incarcerate women and children in eighteenth and nineteenth century Ireland, including Industrial Schools, Children’s Homes, Mother and Baby Institutions and Magdalene Laundries.

Attempting to exhume this recent past and its subsequent intergenerational trauma, Alison Lowry examines the recently published report Mother and Baby Homes and Magdalene Laundries in Northern Ireland and the Bog Meadows in Milltown Cemetery in Belfast.
