About BODIES OF WATER:
An exhibition by an artist you have never heard of, created in collaboration with Maeve Stone, Eoghan Carrick, Jonah King and Úna Kavanagh.
Ira Dean disappeared at sea in 2009 while making her ﬁnal artwork. She vanished completely. But was it an accident? A tragedy? A hoax? The mystery has haunted her partner, Jan Kavanagh, for the last decade in her search for clues in the surviving artworks. Join her as she introduces us to the life and work of Ira Dean.
Bodies of Water ran at The Chocolate Factory until the 12th September as part of Dublin Fringe Festival.
