We Are So Lightly Here

Sculpture. We are so Lightly Here (2018) Aiseirí, by artist Bonnie Kavanagh*

We are so Lightly here is a sculptural piece derived from Aiséirí,  Bonnie’s work referencing the Tuam Babies.  It is of hearts fused together on a stoneware plinth, honouring all the children who died and were interred in Mother and Baby homes in Ireland. The child and baby sized hearts are made from snow white bone china.
