Dig Where You Stand – Artist Talk
6.20pm – 6.40pm – County Museum.
Dig Where you Stand - working closely with the museum curator artist Philippa Sutherland produced a series of interventions into the South Tipperary Museum Collection. The interventions uncover new and surprising narratives and present a very personal response to the collection.
Film Screening - 6.40pm – 8.00pm – County Museum.
A film by John Huston The Dead is delicate and unhurried, detailing a Christmas dinner at the house of two spinster musician sisters and their niece in turn-of-the-century Ireland, attended by friends and family. Among the visiting attendees are the sisters’ nephew Gabriel Conroy and his wife Gretta. The evening’s reminiscences bring up melancholy memories for Gretta concerning her first, long-lost love when she was a girl in rural Galway. Her recounting of this tragic love to Gabriel brings him to an epiphany: he learns the difference between mere existence and living.
