Personal Effects: A History of Possesions 

This exhibition features some of the personal effects of past patients from The Richmond Asylum — later St Brendan’s Hospital, in Grangegorman, Dublin. It bears witness to the histories of anonymous persons who lived, and were cared for, within the institution. Their possessions, while charged objects, are totems of the everyday, suggestive of inner lives no less rich nor remarkable than our own, and revelatory of stories as much about ourselves and about our society as about their owners.
