Ink Exhibition to Tour Venues in Tipperary

Bealtaine is Ireland’s unique festival celebrating creativity in older age, as part of this festival, the exhibition “Ink” will tour to a number of venues in Tipperary, 16th April – 3rd June. “Ink” is a Bealtaine-commissioned exhibition featuring the work of photographer Aidan Kelly, an exploration of why people tattoo their bodies. The exhibition examines diverse ways of ageing and whether the meaning of tattoos changes over time as people age.  During the tour in Tipperary photographer Aidan Kelly will set up his mobile photographic studio to take shots of local older people and their tattoos – a selection of images from each shoot will be included in the travelling exhibition.

Ink will be appearing at two venues.
