It was originally commissioned for the Łódź Biennale in Poland but I’m glad it came to Limerick. It’s still a topical (and touchy) subject in Limerick two years on. At least 1,900 people lost their jobs—dragging up memories of the closure of local factories by multinationals like Krups (closed 1998; 500 jobs) and Ferenka (closed 1977; 1,400 jobs). And those examples further reinforce the concept of how capital moves, which is a worrying trend for the Irish economy-dependent as it is on an export-driven recovery.

Speaking as someone who was recently made redundant, it’s a pretty accurate look inside the process from both a personal and practical point of view. It links common experiences from all over the world. How Capital Moves is a considered, carefully executed artistic response to real universal concerns.
