Sunday 26th May 2013, 14:00 – 19:00
NEW WORK BY SVEN ANDERSON, AOIFE DESMOND, FIONA MCDONALD, EMA NIK THOMAS
Following five months of collaborative work, small research events and the activation of a studio space at the Pigeon House Hotel on the Poolbeg Peninsula in Dublin Bay, we’re delighted to invite you to attend a series of events for Landing Place.
Over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May 2013, Landing Place presents four newly commissioned contemporary art works in sound, film, architectural intervention and performance, by Sven Anderson, Aoife Desmond, Fiona McDonald and Ema Nik Thomas. These works explore the Pigeon House Precinct and its context in the Poolbeg Peninsula through ideas of activation and access. A talk series on Saturday afternoon from 2pm until 5pm will open up a discussion about the site and the project through presentations on contemporary art, heritage, urban planning and ideas of access. Context specific hospitality treatment will be provided by Jennie Moran with Luncheonette.
Landing Place is a Commonage commissioned project, curated by Hollie Kearns and Rosie Lynch and developed in partnership with Dublin City Council Heritage Office.
