Abstract

Commissioned by Triskel Arts Centre as part of the Cork European Capital of Culture 2005, Eight Rooms is an installation work relating to the site of a derelict wing of the Cork City Gaol, known locally as the ‘Cork Women’s Prison.' The work comprises 6-channel video & audio, 6 concrete beds with aluminium armature, photographic time-lapse and sound recording. This integration of voice performance, moving image and architectural objects evokes an imagined inhabitation of the site concomitant with a kinesthetic experience communicating, through the body, the cold, the damp and the ruin of it all. The project also involved the production of a limited edition artists’ book of poetry and drawings as well as the organisation and running of a creative workshop for inmates at the Limerick City Prison.
