Current Exhibition: A Way Home / Slí Abhaile
Two siblings get lost in the woods. There they meet a mysterious traveller and embark on an adventure that sees them encountering a cheeky púca, some lost souls, and a choir of banshees….
These illustrations by twelve Irish artists are a selection from a larger exhibition, which originally exhibited in Kerry in 2021. They are each based on aspects of writer Olivia Hope’s story of two children lost in a forest on a night when the veil between the world of humans and spirits is at its thinnest.
Presented by MoLI in partnership with Siamsa Tíre, The National Folk Theatre of Ireland, A Way Home / Slí Abhaile is an exhibition for kids and the young at heart. And, just like the muralist Klo Wi, who has decorated our walls, you can leave your mark too; show us your creativity by writing, drawing, doodling on the woodland chalkboard.
