Water Witching Exhibition
Aistear" is a video installation work that was featured in the recent exhibition Water Witching.
The work explores themes of childhood and the passage of time, using a combination of video footage and audio to create a immersive and emotive experience for the viewer. The work is inspired by my own memories of growing up and the way that our experiences and perceptions of the world change as we age. Through the use of carefully selected imagery and sound, "Aistear" aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia and reflection in the audience, encouraging them to think about their own experiences of childhood and how they have shaped who they are today
"The House is Leaving Me" is the title of a series of images featured in my 2021 exhibition "Aistear". The title is a reference to memory and place and speaks to the theme of childhood and the passage of time, and the way that our experiences and perceptions of the world change as we age. The reference to my mother's declining memory and her return to her childhood home speaks to the way that our memories can be both a comfort and a source of sorrow, as we struggle to hold onto the past while also moving forward.
This series of images is part of a larger ongoing body of work that explores the idea of the presence of place. By focusing on the theme of memory and the relationship between people and their surroundings, I am inviting the viewer to consider the role that place plays in shaping our experiences and identities. I believe that this is a rich and complex theme, and one that has the potential to speak to people on a deeply personal level.
