About this event

Revenants presents a series of paintings by Cork-based artist Kevin Mooney. Informed by Mooney's interest in Irish mythology, history and cultural migration, Revenants imagines the 'lost' art of an Irish diaspora.

Revenants assembles a significant body of recent work by Cork-based artist Kevin Mooney. Bringing together paintings made between 2016 and 2022, Mooney’s practice visualises under-explored areas of Irish history.

As a colonised nation, there are large gaps in the record of our art history and material culture caused by poverty, famine and mass migration. Mooney’s work reconsiders these lacunae and reverse-engineers the ‘lost’ visual culture of this Irish diaspora, imagining it as a mutant absurdist folklore, and, in the process opening up thorny questions about cultural influence and transformation.

Tue - Sat 10:00 - 17:30, Sun 12:00 - 17:30.
