By 09/06/2018July 22nd, 2018News

Launch 6pm Thu 5 July
Running 6-29 Jul
At The Library Project
, 4 Temple Bar Street, Dublin 2

At Mirrored River was inspired by the Gaelic word Teannalach (pron. “chann-ah-lack”) which means awareness. In particular, it is awareness of that which is intangible and hushed; of being aware of the quietness and presence of people, places and nature. With this in mind, Enda sought to capture the teannalach of stories and dreams within a singular town.

The project is entirely made in an ordinary post-industrial town. For Enda, the challenge was to find the light and the beauty in the ordinary, the hope and the optimism. As the project unfolded, it became less about the location of the project and more about mapping the feelings contained within the town. It is about the awareness of who we are, the questions we ask and the dreams we project.

With a very big thank you to Emma-Lucy O’ Brien and Ann Mulroney at Visual Carlow.
Join us on the opening night for a drink, kindly provided by 12 Acres Brewing and Walsh Whiskey Distillery.
