Simon Corcoran’s exhibition ‘Pig Shop; Precious Gold’ at the Custom House Studios is an artist’s response to the once thriving pig industry in Limerick and Ireland. With photography, sculpture, video and a small number of paintings, the exhibition largely features new works, which uses imitation gold to interrogate the use of materials in art and industry. A graduate of the Limerick School of Art and Design, Corcoran’s interests lie in challenging ideas of art, morality and display.
