Anachrony is an exhibition which looks at a day in the life of a suffragette activist who visited Ireland in the summer of 1912 and was sentenced to 5 years hard labour in Mountjoy jail for trying to set fire to the Theatre Royal Hippodrome and Winter Garden. Hand draws on links between the courthouse, theatre and prison to remember, re enact and examine protest and dissent. Anachrony is made specifically for The Dock and contains photography, sculpture, and writing.
