Peace exhibition: Airfix Days by Abigail O’Brien at Peppercanister Gallery, Dublin
3 Herbert Street, Dublin 2, Ireland
19 October – 10 November 2012
Opening 18th October, 5.30 – 8.00pm
Every adult of today remembers the airfix models of yesterday.
Abigail O’Brien, Irish artist, felt a great emotion that day she started to show her old airfix models to a German friend. Maybe their parents lived in a world where Irish and German people were enemies but today, in that peaceful afternoon, she noticed European people can have a better future and in spite of past fights and current economic crisis, to walk together and built a world where everybody can play and enjoy life.
This is the meaning of her next exhibition at Peppercanister Gallery in Dublin, to move souls throughout the world so we can think on our childhood and feel again free of prejudices.
Everybody is invited to this new different event!

“Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.”
“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
