Ongoing

Deering is a body of work engaging with the two countries of my origin, My Mother's Land and My Father's; Ireland and Australia.

Through the passing of blood, the journeys of generations, a homeland becomes a mystical place of ritual and the promise of old. Stories passed and changed by each tongue tell histories of family. Growing up in Australia with an Irish Mother lead me to a feeling of awe and a want to see, feel and touch this idealised place. 

What is home? Where is home? These places that make us who we are, that define us. How much do we really belong to them? And what do we truly know about them?
