Ladakh Jewellers


8 Rutland St, LimerickGoogle MapsArrow
  • The now derelict Ladakh Jewellers is situated on Rutland Street, one of the most important streets in Limerick during the 18th century.
  • Rutland Street was named after Charles Manners, 4th Duke of Rutland, who was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland in 1784 and who visited Limerick in 1785.
  • This site was one of 18 venues for the 27th edition of EVA in 2003, curated by Virginia Pérez-Ratton (b. 1950, Costa Rica).
  • Nadin Ospina (b. 1960, Colombia) exhibited an installation of multiple small works, integrated within the window display of the jewellers.
  • The works included pendants, bowls, and ornamental trinkets that brought together the traditions of pre-Columbian craft and the iconography of American cartoon characters, such as Mickey Mouse and Bart Simpson.
