Ports, Past and Present
- The Liffey Corner
- EPIC The Irish Emigration Museum CHQ, Custom House Quay D01T6K6 Dublin
- Co. Dublin – Dublin City
Join us for a conversation around seagulls and port scenes, protest and printmaking.
Dublin-based artists Julie Merriman and Augustine O’Donoghue discuss their creative commissions for the Ports, Past and Present project, on show at the Liffey Corner in the CHQ Building through Heritage Week. Julie will explain her use of obsolete office copying materials in her work, which draws on the history of ‘mark making’ in order to create striking modern prints. Augustine will take us through the making of her sound installation on the ecological plight of herring gulls in the Dublin area, whose habitats have been built over or destroyed by humans.
The Ports, Past and Present project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation programme.
