Abstract

WECreate Spaces - Limerick is a poetic visual portrait of the historic city of Limerick.
Bodies and costume merge with the materials and shapes, resonating the textural and rhythmic layers of the urban landscapes. The work suggests an embodied ethnographic view of the local, drawing on the visceral ability of the artists to capture ephemeral sensibilities through their presence. This montage highlights echoes of the now along with fragments of the past, revealing the stories that are engrained in the desecrated architecture and felt through the movements of the people of the city.

Filmed in Limerick, Ireland, 2019; completed in United States 2020.
