Galway International Arts Festival: First Thought Talk with John Gerrard - Mirror Pavilion


The Pavilion is a beautiful and striking structure, with
 three sides and the roof clad in a highly reflective mirror and the fourth wall a high–resolution LED wall.

This structure will host two new artworks Corn Work and Leaf Work which unfold on the LED screen presented in two locations; Corn Work at the historic Claddagh Quay in Galway City and Leaf Work at the spectacular 4,000–year–old Derrigimlagh Bog in Connemara. The works reflect and respond to the landscape of both locations.

Another inspiring artist and project .. using the power of the river that runs through Galway, a piece which 'performs' for a year .. virtual dancers trained by actual dancers of different ages ... and so much more. Thank you to #IETMGalway for introducing me to this work
