This exhibition, the weed project, is centred around Ann McGinley’s continuing exploration of migration. As a migrant born of migrants from the Levant, Ann works on representations of displacement, the need for acceptance, resilience and regeneration. She travelled to France, Brazil and Crete between 2018 and 2022 as an artist in residence and in each place became preoccupied with the uncultivated weeds which persist along the roads and alleyways.
Overlooked, eradicated, defiled; foraged but rarely nurtured these weeds represent the struggle for existence, they survive and regenerate with determined resistance. The survival of weeds parallels that of the migrant, transplanted to an alien environment they persist in conditions that predict failure.
