Wish You Were Here is a site-specific performance from an Airbnb apartment to an audience located across the road on TBG+S atrium balcony. Avril Corroon will present Airbnb’s transformation of the domestic environment to the productive factory by re-purposing the apartment further as a stage. Temple Bar, Ireland’s most popular tourist destination, will set the backdrop for Corroon to unpick the marketing deceptions of Irish tourism and the sharing economy.
Avril Corroon was the recipient of the 2016 TBG+S Recent Graduate Residency Award. Her work takes the form of videos and institutional interventions which she uses to critique neoliberal structures and their oppressive implications in everyday life.
