Swan Lake Projection on Thomas Street Centre

12Thomas Street center in Limerick City was built During Ireland’s Celtic Tiger years, to be an office space for the at-the-time-flourishing local businesses.

Recession came instead and the glass yoke wasn’t completed. 

For the next couple of years, the city council ran an exciting urban planning project called Creative Limerick in the space, where the empty lots were given rent-free to the fantastic people of Occupy Space, Faber Studios, Like Studios and others, who made it into one of the most prominent art clusters in the country.

Then in 2012, some large company suddenly found a bit of money to invest, and all the art establishments we out  of the building within a week.

Nothing was done with the building yet, bar making the alleyway very appealing for local junkies and prostitutes. 

I projected the Swan Lake Ballet performance on the the now-empty block, famous for being show on soviet television at the times of political instability, now a symbol of censorship.
