Time Rite – Artist Gareth Kennedy will present on a project developed over the last 2 years on the Dún Chaocháin Peninsula at 7.30pm

Artist Gareth Kennedy will present on a project developed over the last 2 years on the Dún Chaocháin Peninsula. This grew out of a commission to mark the 25th anniversary of the Tír Sáile Sculpture Trail which was part of the Mayo 5000 celebrations back in 1993. Gareth will present a series of artefacts produced locally out of 4000-year-old Erris bogwood which will be ceremonially buried in Dún Chaocháin in the presence of the local community as a contemporary time rite later in the year. The event will include research into the folklore and mythological aspects of Dún Chaocháin counterpointed by the archaeological record of bog finds in Erris. Reference will also be made to carbon dating and dendrochronology of bogwood and what this can tell us about landscape and climate change.  Gareth’s work is to reflect on the last 25 years of life in the area and to create something that will be around in 25 years time.  This project is funded by an Arts Council Participation Award with additional support from Áras Inis Gluaire.
