This body of work was made over a short period of time spent in rural Wexford, Ireland, ‘in a place so overwhelmingly familiar to me, it was as though I was walking through memories of my own childhood.’ Acutely aware that she had never actually been to this place before, Ruth Connolly tried to make sense of an uncanny feeling that what she was seeing was not really her own home, by photographing the place as she experienced it. Playing with the unreliable relationship between what lay in front of her, and what she knew to be true, the images have been gathered together here in a sort of false bank of memories. The work was made during her time at How to Flatten a Mountain, an artist residency at Cow House Studios in Wexford as part of PhotoIreland Festival 2017.
