Event Details

We have a holiday house on the Maharees peninsula, Co Kerry.When I am there (alas not since last September).my activities -walking, swimming, beachcombing/cleaning, – are dictated by the tides.

In 2018 I used the plastic litter I collected as material for my Fine Art degree show installation which was entitled “Beachkeeping’. It comprised a cabinet of beach found ‘curiosities,’ stacks of small plastic objects and fragments displayed in acrylic cubes, and a video of myself using a domestic floor brush to sweep up micro plastics left on the tideline. The installation pieces have since been displayed in several group shows. The video was shown during a performance art event at Ulster University in 2019 . I would like to show the video and may also share still images from the video and of the beach and the installations.
