Jim Ricks’ show is comprised of several elements themed around interpretations of identity and ideology in Ireland. Instead of making a single issue piece, he deals with the complexities of Irish society through several simultaneous explorations. The show revolves around the core concept of a what is ‘true’ in contemporary Irish society vis-à-vis what is ‘manufactured’ and marketable. Ricks also plays with both the historical definitions and the contemporary revisions of everyday signifiers. The show promises to be playful, demanding and consciously cluttered.
