This commissioned work takes the form of a unique programme of screenings and site-specific moving image installations curated by Alice Butler & Daniel Fitzpatrick of aemi and artist Cliona Harmey. Over the course of three weeks in September (17 – 29), the project traces a journey along the River Liffey from Dublin Port’s most eastern point at Poolbeg Lighthouse on the Great South Wall into its inner city and now invisible waterways, offering new possibilities for engagement with Dublin’s port and its history.
The Culture Night event will focus on the contributions of three artists- Cliona Harmey, Vanessa Daws and Dan Shipsides.
Vanessa Daws’ art practice explores place through swimming and for port | river | city she has created a new multi-screen Liffey-based work. Daws’ work will be back-projected onto the street-level windows of the Dublin Docklands Dublin City Council building on Custom House Quay (opposite chq). Cliona Harmey’s new work also shown here and at T5 Field Cinema will stream footage from the interior space of Poolbeg Lighthouse, offering the public the chance, for a limited time, to experience a view that is ordinarily out of reach.
TheT5 Field Cinema will park further down on North Wall Quay (opposite new Central Bank) and will feature a programme of selected experimental film works (Helouise O’Reilly, David Donohoe, William Raban, Shipsides and Beggs, Dara Flanagan). This will run from 7-9pm.
port | river | city is a commissioned work by Dublin Port Company as part of Port Perspectives.
Time: 6pm - 9pm
