Crown beoir

Portrait 10

Crown beoir is an exhibition originated by artist Breda Mayock and photographed by Orla Sloyan, on display in the Courtyard Gallery at the National Museum of Ireland - Country Life.

This exhibition is part of a fascinating Mayo arts project entitled Crown - Hair and Indentity which focuses on Traveller/Mincéiri women and girls and the subject of how hair is intrinsically linked to identity, ethnicity, culture and gender.
