Arbor is a collaborative practice by Hilary Murray and Clare Anne O’Keefe exploring interdisciplinarity and how this can develop new modes of research.
Installation Dates: June 20th-24th.
ArtBox, 3 James Joyce Street, Dublin 1
A culinary response by Arbor to the work and inspiration behind the paintings of Kevin Mooney. This site-specific installation will feature in the gallery during the final week of Kevin Mooney’s solo exhibition to coincide with National Refugee Week.
This responsive work explores the dialectics involved in the notion of homeland and the idea that food is integral to ones memory of place. Much like memory, this is not fixed, but remains as an intangible essence of place delicately framed within a subjective reference.
“We sat tight
On short cross-benches, in nervous twos and threes,
Obedient, newly close, nobody speaking”
