Making Space is a timely exploration of the expansion and development of Islam in contemporary Ireland. Taken over the course of three years, the exhibition records the adaptive reuse of spaces for the purpose of prayer by diverse Muslim communities across Ireland.
There is a calmness and informality in Bowler's portraits of these spaces. Without formal structures or divisions, these spaces are evidence of an earnest faith that transcends the separations and barriers established in secular life.
Making Space is a touring exhibition organised by Gallery of Photography Ireland in partnership with Millennium Court Arts Centre, Portadown. Special thanks to Fire Fine Art Printing and the Office for Integration, Dublin City Council.
Exhibition curated by Tanya Kiang, Gallery of Photography, Dublin.
