Black Milk by Miho Ohtsubo

Visual Arts
 Wednesday, 22 December 2021

Black Milk will run from the 8-22 December 2021

Republic of Conscience presents the work of Japanese visual artist Miho Ohtsubo for her first exhibition in Europe. Ohtsubo’s work has been inspired by the poetry of Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill. By engaging with Ní Dhomhnaill’s ‘Immram’ sequence and her poem ‘Dubh’ through the Japanese translations of Mitsuko Ohno, Ohtsubo has responded to the themes of the texts in very personal and powerful ways. The exhibition will feature Ohtsubo’s installation ‘Black Milk’ along with other works that demonstrate her compassionate grasp of Ní Dhomhnaill’s poetic world and reflect underlying themes of migration and displacement.

'Black Milk', is invited and hosted by the Republic of Conscience: Human Rights and Modern Irish Poetry, the NUI Galway research project, and the Galway Arts Centre.


Miho Ohtsubo was born in Hokkaido in 1945. She graduated from Musashino Art University in 1968 and has had numerous exhibitions of her work in Japan and overseas.


Republic of Conscience: Human Rights and Modern Irish Poetry is a research project led by Professor Rióna Ní Fhrighil, NUI Galway, and funded by the Irish Research Council Laureate Awards.


In partnership with Republic of Conscience  and Irish Research Council
