A 1916 Commemorative Exhibition, in association with Cork City Council
St Peters Church, 1916 Exhibition Centre, North Main St. Cork
October 10th - November 9th 2016
The exhibition of Lifescape collages entitled 16 Letters is based on letters written during the momentous events prior to, during and after the Easter Rising and The First World War, between November 1915 and October 1916.
The letters sent to, from and within Ireland give a sense of profound context to the extraordinary and ordinary historical events of this time.
The Lifescapes portray the personal and subjective written testimonies of the writers, within the wider context of contemporary events of this pivotal period in Irish history and transform the ordinary everyday banalities of life into multi-layered, highly emotive images.
16 Letters previewed in the Irish Repertory Theatre, New York, as part of Culture Ireland's celebration of 100 years of Irish culture, in association with Salon Éire 100.
