Miriam de Burca & others @ Alan Cristea Gallery
28 February 2019 - 30 March 2019
Protest and Remembrance brings together four artists, Miriam de Búrca, Joy Gerrard, Mary Griffiths and Barbara Walker, who use drawing to examine elements of protest and/or remembrance through a range of subjects that include war, political demonstration, burial sites and lost industry, set in both the urban and the rural, past and present. Miriam de Búrca focuses on the ancient burial sites in Ireland called cilliní which were used to bury unbaptised babies, and many others considered ‘unsuitable’ for consecrated ground; Joy Gerrard looks at what happens when democratic processes express, even produce, social and political divisions?; Mary Griffiths investigates the lost industry of coal mining; and Barbara Walker’s works depict people who are often cast as minorities.
