Sound Installation

June 16th 11am-5pm


When Leopold Bloom in James Joyce’s novel Ulysses compared the sound of Molly urinating in a chamber pot to music it sparked the idea for the artist Danny McCarty to create the installation “Chamber Music (One Hundred Urinations For James Joyce)”.

McCarthy is no stranger to Joyce having had his first exhibition entitled “Who Killed James Joyce ?” followed by several other works on Joyce including the ongoing work “ One Hundred Bottles For James Joyce” where he deposited one hundred specially designed bottles each containing a note into the river Liffey in 1982 asking the finders to reply to him stating when and where they found the bottle. Another work by him marking the centenary of Bloomsday entitled “Walls Have hEars p433” occupied three floors of the stairwell in the Crawford Gallery, Cork.

This new work marks the centenary of the publication of Ulysses in a unique way both visually and sonically where the artist has composed the sounds of urination into a sonic opera that occupies the space it is installed in whilst constantly changing all the time thus never sounding the same at any one time. Echoing the experience of reading and rereading Ulysses and finding something new every time one reads the book.

It will be available for listening and viewing for one day only at Unit 44 (Kirkos), Prussia Street, Dublin on Bloomsday 16th June 2022 from 11M -5PM. A special Limited Edition 7” Picture Disk signed and numbered by the artist will available to purchase on the day.
