Thur 9th Feb – Sat 8th April 2017, 7pm
Garter Lane Arts Centre is delighted to present Asylum Archive, an exhibition of photography, artefacts and found objects created by visual artist and researcher Vukašin Nedeljković. Asylum Archive is directly concerned with the everyday realities of asylum seekers in Ireland, drawing on Nedeljković’s personal experience of being an asylum seeker and living in direct provision centres throughout Ireland.
Nedeljković is a visual artist and PhD student at the Centre for Transcultural Research and Media Practice at Dublin Institute of Technology. He initiated the Asylum Archive as a multidisciplinary project to collaborate with asylum seekers, artists, academics, civil society activists and immigration lawyers, amongst others, with a view to creating an interactive documentary cross-platform online resource which critically brings forward accounts of sociological/geographical displacement, memory loss, trauma, and violence.
Asylum Archive opens in Garter Lane Arts Centre Main Gallery, Waterford, on Thursday February 9th 2017 at 7pm. Exhibition continues until Saturday April 8st 2017.
Opening hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am- 5.30pm and during evening performances. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Exhibition tours for primary, post primary and third level students are available.
