There are records of a small range of buildings near South William Street, evocatively called “Tib and Tom” where citizens reputedly assembled to practise archery or play nine-pins (skittles) in medieval times. In the Land of Tib and Tom is an exhibition about the real and imagined stories of places. Five artists depict various physical spaces and territories or examine the material traces that linger in buildings over time, as they change form and function.

When the sky is lit up with the pink shades of sunrise or sunset the world is awakened to the signal of day approaching or night falling. But if one had just awoken and seen the pinking of the sky they could easily be confused as to what time of the day it was. Giving rise to a temporary disorientation and weightlessness under the sky.

The Amulet Exhibition Tour opens at Galway Arts Centre on 1 August 2014.

The exhibition stems from The Amulet project (2009-2013), a collaboration between artist Marie Brett, bereaved parents, and three hospital sites: Cork University Maternity Hospital, University Maternity Hospital Limerick, and Waterford Regional Hospital. Intimate and universally relatable, you’ll feel and think differently about loss after seeing this show.
