EX­HI­BI­TION STIGMA DAM­AGES

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - LISTINGS -

Michelle Hor­ri­gan’s witty, pointed ex­plo­ration of the min­ing and in­dus­trial trail that pro­duces alu­minium strik­ingly in­cludes a dance rou­tine, re-en­acted from the 1983 movie Flash­dance in which the hero­ine, who works in a Pitts­burgh steel mill, dreams of a danc­ing ca­reer. The new set­ting is a field close to Ire­land’s largest in­dus­trial com­plex in Askeaton, Hor­ri­gan’s home­town, where baux­ite be­comes alu­minium. Stigma Dam­ages is legalese for pos­si­ble loss or con­tam­i­na­tion “due to en­vi­ron­men­tal cir­cum­stances”. Oc­cupy Space, Leamy House, Hart­stonge Street, Lim­er­ick. Wed­nes­day to Satur­day, noon-6pm. Un­til Aug 23. oc­cu­pys­pace.com
