The premier of artist Marie Brett’s new filmic work Dragon’s Tail, presented with live straw-girl music, in a special once-off installation event in Wandesford Quay courtyard.
Film Duration: 10 minutes & will run continuously on a loop 8pm-9.30pm
The film will be projected on the side of the building and musicians in straw-girl costumes created especially for Dragon’s Tail, will perform live amongst a newly created audio-visual installation and prints.
Dragon’s Tail is an epic folk myth. It explores how electromagnetic energy and cultural lore relate to human health and alien other-worlds. Filmed on a peninsula in Ireland’s West Coast, the piece combines folk custom spectacle and magical landscape with dazzling effigies, fire drawing and ethereal sound. Fact, fiction and myth are fused into new cultural lore.
A series of prints produced by the artist while on residency at Cork Printmakers in 2022 will be on display in Cork Printmakers ground floor studio.
Event produced with the support of Lavit Gallery and Backwater Artists Group.
Please note this is an outdoor event.
