As part of Liverpool Irish Festival, Pamela Sullivan brings a guerrilla exhibition into the Williamson.
In this series of miniature works, Pamela explores the forgotten people of Ireland, recreating landscapes within Merseyside’s urban jungle.
The Forgotten will run as a pop-up within Sweeney’s Unquiet Islands between 12th – 29th October, and across Liverpool Irish Festival venues and the Liverpool Irish Famine Trail. You’ll have to keep your eyes peeled to spot her houses!
If you find one, you should take a photo, load it to social media and tag in @LivIrishFest and hashtag #LIF2022home. As Pamela builds her trail, an online exhibition will continuously expand on the Liverpool Irish Festival website.
Though diminutive in scale, the impact of Pamela’s work is monumental. Her transported spaces imply abandonment and displacement.
Pamela’s work asks all these questions and many more besides.
