May Donoghue in Bronze

May Donoghue in bronze, to be installed at The Tannahill Centre Spring 2018, a tribute to the woman who pursued a case of negligence which enshrined the principles of The Duty of Care. Historically, the narrative has focussed on the snail which was found in her drink but here Mandy McIntosh has focussed on the woman, emphasising the impact of poverty on her life and her status as a “poor woman” who was means tested to avoid court expenses. The bronze figure will be placed on an oak plinth with additional hand coloured bronze spirals.
