Theresa Nanigian: Master of My Universe
Limerick City Gallery of Art, Pery Square, Limerick. Until January 14. gallery.limerick.ie
The second instalment of Theresa Nanigian’s three-part project, “just a bit extraordinary”, charting human life stages. Master of My Universe considers “the middle developmental stage of adulthood”, when earning a living is a major preoccupation. Nanigian finds a metaphor for this stage of life in the subculture formed by the many individual vendors who deal on the boardwalk of Venice Beach, California. Despite the huge range of people and backgrounds, and the potential for competitive conflict, she found a mutually supportive network. She documented their stories as well as picturing them opposite their stall-fronts and includes samples of what they sell.
