Áine McBride

Áine McBride presented and/or land (2020), an installation of sculptural works and framed photographs presented throughout the Sailor’s Home – a 19th century building that was originally designed as a resting place for international sailors. The work was a subtle and ambiguous response to the architecture with McBride’s work also functioning as an access ramp and handrail to the entrance of the building.

Áine McBride’s participation formed part of the 39th EVA International Platform Commissions.
