The Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home operated between the years of 1925 to 1961 in the town of Tuam, County Galway, Ireland. Run by an order of Bon Secours catholic nuns, this home and many others like it, existed as housing and punishment for the unmarried mothers of Ireland and their children. Intermingled is a mixed media representation of the crimes committed by the church and state and their involvement in the death and cover up of approximately 800 children who remain in the grounds of the now demolished mother and baby home, awaiting exhumation. By employing the use of photography, moving image and sculptural elements, Intermingled attempts to illustrate the true unthinkable scope of this ongoing tragedy.
