Abbey River


River Abbey, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • The Abbey River is a distributary arm of the River Shannon. Its name is derived from the former Franciscan abbey located next to it.
  • This site was one of 18 venues for the 27th edition of EVA in 2003, curated by Virginia Pérez-Ratton (b. 1950, Costa Rica) and titled on the border of each other.
  • Milton Becerra (b. 1951, Venezuela) presented a sculptural work, Medusa (2003), that was suspended across the river.
  • In her curatorial essay for the EVA catalogue, Virginia Pérez-Ratton described the work’s resemblance to a ‘red and black woven “jellyfish” with a long tentacle-like tail [that] moves in the wind and flows with the tide on the Abbey River’.
