    Migration features in Limerick exhibition

    By Noreen Bowden | September 5, 2008

    Emigration features prominently in an exhibition by Michael McLoughlin at the Limerick City Gallery. McLoughlin is a Dublin-based artist with an interest in travel, migration and movement, and his latest exhibition, “I only come here ‘cos it’s free”, focuses on an aging community.

    The centre piece of the exhibition is a new film-work I Don’t See The Lads That Much Anymore, developed in collaboration with critically acclaimed actor and comedian Jon Kenny and writer Michael Finn. The film re-visits a previous character, a London-based Irish emigrant, exploring displacement through an individual’s struggle but also the multitude of changes experienced in Irish culture in the past 20 years.

    The exhibition runs from September 12 to November 16.
