Flight | Frank McElhinney
Posted by CHARTS
Flight is a solo exhibition by artist Frank McElhinney that reflects upon the long history of migration between Ireland and Scotland, with a particular focus on the effects of the Great Famine during the mid-nineteenth century. His work investigates contemporary issues through a historical lens to address issues around conflict, migration, and nationhood. Recent wars in Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan have forced millions of people to flee their homelands. The worsening climate crisis almost guarantees other major population shifts in the near future. The work in the exhibition asks us to consider our own history so that we can better understand the response required to meet the contemporary challenges of mass migration.
