Is Leir Don Saol E On Firrine (Everybody Knows their Truth)
Questioning where we come from? The truth of our Identity? Who do others perceive us to be? Do I, do you even care?
Physical features aren’t the only characteristics that identify our origin. Whilst the hidden/ unknown often frightens, ‘Black Irish’ roots have been confused with other nationalities, sometimes for the better, more often subject to inexplicable discrimination.
Tapping into both recent and ancestral past, I attempt to bind the assumptions and associations of his origin, inviting you to also release your ‘labels’, to be cleansed and removed. Leave thoughts associated with your own heritage/nationality/identity that were/are and never have been, as the built upon layers distort a former self.
