For his contribution to the ‘Art And The Great Hunger’ exhibition in 2019, OMIN (ig | web) drew inspiration from the battering rams used to evict people from their homes – for a photograph see History Today – and the Gabriel Rosenstock poem “Dóibh Siúd A Dúnmharaíodh 1845-1850” [To The Murdered Of 1845-1850], which ends “A réaltaí, féachaíg’ anuas/Go dtí nach mbeidh sa ghrian/Ach abhac dubh” [Stars, look down/Until the sun is nothing/But a black dwarf] (ig).
With support from UV Arts. The van is part of the piece.
