Marianne Keating’s multimedia installation will focus on the movement of the Irish indentured labourers and emigrants in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century to Barbados and Jamaica and their legacy in the Caribbean. Tracing the migration of the Irish from ports including Cork, Limerick and Belfast, she explores the 18th century role of the Customs House, where Crawford Art Gallery is now located. Keating determines new narratives in response to the dominant master narratives of Western nationhood, rewriting the histories of the dominated ‘other’.
Marianne Keating is an Irish artist based between Ireland and London.
