Water Senses

Glenade Lough or Ghleann Éada – meaning ‘lake of the glen of jealousy’ – holds the story of the dobhar-chú, a creature of Irish folklore known as the ‘water hound’. This tale of heartache and loss is carried through the valley and takes many different forms.
These waters channel the metaphysical forces that interact with it and the stories, memories, myths and folk tales that are layered upon it. My process involves serial dilutions with water and each individual water sample is analysed to see what is held within. These samples can be viewed as tiny poetic time machines which form the basis of moving image and photographic works, as well as water remedies.

‘Water Senses’ is supported by the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme managed by Arts and Disability Ireland. It is kindly supported by Leitrim Sculpture Centre and The Model, Sligo.
