Niamh Smith

Institutions of Home: Intimate Spaces

Niamh Smith works with photography, text, light and sound to create an expressive, intimate language that communicates different narratives within her practice. Her work conceptualises photography as an act of prayer. A central focus of the work was concerned with Irish female sexuality and structures of control and the repercussions of such from the 1920's to present day. In collaboration with survivors, Smith traces the history of 'Fallen Women' who spent time in religious institutions known as ''Mother and Baby Homes'' to give birth, be cleansed of their sins, and commonly, put back into society without their child. The outcome is empathetic with a layered composite of the political, the social and the personal. These are shared intimate stories that raise uncomfortable and concealed truths about a country’s past.
