For Artist Michelle Boyle this question is part of her artistic practice exploring identity and inheritance.
Boyle grew up between Finglas and Ballymun in the 1970s where the flats ‘rose like a New York skyline far across open fields where we would roam’ Her parents had migrated to the area from Donegal- a County which remained integral to their identity and also to their sisers and brothers who had also left and emigrated on to the UK and the US.
The Artists childhood home in Ballymun became a place of passage for these relations en route to the airport and ferry.
This exhibiton reflects on the artists sense of a real and remembered homeplace and the layers which inform that.
The exhibition will subsequently travel to the US.
Michelle Boyle is a visual artist working in painting and installation. She exhibits in Ireland and Internationally where she is in many public and corporate collections. She is interested in identity and visual inheritance and is involved in cross cultural dialogue on this.
