You and your guest are warmly invited to the opening of:
PhotoIreland Festival 2013 – New Irish Works
Austin Clarke wrote of the detrimental effect of the Irish Civil War on national pride and identity in The Lost Heifer. The symbolic young animal, with its capacity to bring light where it walked, is a subdued envisioning of a nationalist ideal that flared briefly with hope.
This exhibition brings together three diverse photographic practices which reconsider national identity against the flux of current times.
Turning Silver Out of Dark Grasses offers viewpoints beyond the headlines of popular media and includes a subjective commentary on the perception of Irish identity abroad, an imaginative re-working of an Irish literary classic and a thoughtful meditation on the daily unsung heroism around us.
The exhibition features new work by David Nugent, Karen Tierney and Cindy Morrissey as part of the Canon Open Program during PhotoIreland Festival 2013.
Opening: Thursday, July 18th | 1830H
