Sarah Pierce : Pathos of Distance

Pathos of Distance is formed around 42 images relating to Irish migration and diaspora, created between 1813 and 1912. Sourced from countries around the world, they have been photographed and reproduced to their original scale. Pierce presents them in a series of sculptures constructed from items of second-hand domestic furniture, culled from the stocks of suppliers in Dublin. In bringing these disparate images and objects together, these sculptures evoke the concept and rhetoric of diaspora, suggesting themes of displacement and hybridity.
