This is where I belong – this exact spot


In association with Farmleigh House, Dublin. 

Solo Exhibition at Farmleigh House,

Cowshed Theatre, Phoenix Park, Dublin.

September 27 to October 22, 2017.

The title of this solo exhibition was borrowed from a line of poetry from the artist’s close friend who was a significant force in helping Michelle explore and embrace her adoptive and  Irish/ Indian identity.  In the process of travelling to India to her ‘Fatherland’  Michelle is finding expression for her female adult self through different artistic processes including painting / works on paper/ Installation and video. This exhibition was supported by The Ireland India Council.


A full colour catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
The catalogue is available to purchase here.
