Kennedy Browne, The Special Relationship, still from HD video, 6 minutes, 2013

Kennedy Browne will present new work at as part of the group show Upending – an exhibition of enquiries at Limerick City Gallery of Art. This work is a culmination of Kennedy Browne's participation in the Troubling Ireland Think Tank,  initiated in late 2010 by Danish curatorial collective, Kuratorisk Aktion and commissioned by Fire Station Artists’ Studios. This show has been curated by Helen Carey, Director / Curator of Limerick City Gallery of Art, who also participated in the think tank.

Kennedy Browne are presenting three works: The Special Relationship (2013), Don't Ask, Don't Tell (2013), and Ireland is Good for You* (2011). Responding to an unspecified trauma, this body of work investigates the region as a site of Irish / American mobility and investment, exploring the parallels between the pharmaceutical industry and Shannon airport as a transatlantic stopover.
