In advance of the winter solstice, Lars Fischer and Tobi Maier invite you for a circular hike from Carraig-na-gcat (Glandore, Co. Cork, Ireland) to the Drombeg Stone Circle, and back again.

Constructed during the later period of the Bronze Age, approximately 3,000 years ago, the Drombeg Stone Circle, also known as the Druid’s Altar is a megalithic place of ritual and ceremony dedicated to sun worship.

In the course of our walk we will ponder communal arts projects such as artist organised processions and parades in consideration of the rituals originating from megalithic stone rings.

We will have with us a circular steel ring commissioned by Sleeperhold Publications. This ring is a limited edition reduction of a steel ring designed by common room for 019 (Ghent) which was a distortion of a circular steel ring designed by common room for Dexter Sinister at Stella Municipal Cinema (Athens) — later moved on to Radio Athènes — which was an adapted re-production of a circular steel ring designed by common room for Casco (Utrecht) based on a re-interpretation of a circular steel ring by ifau & Jesko Fezer for the Goethe-Institut Wyoming Building (New York) following a re-production of a steel ring by common room produced for ‘Dexter Sinister Presents Common Room (Circular)’ (New York) which was a re-consideration of the original steel ring designed by Aldo van Eyck for the architect’s apartment in Amsterdam (1948).

Meet us for this circular ceremony on Sunday, December 16, 11am at Carraig-na-gcat, the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation’s new artist-in-residence program in West Cork. (Carraig-na-gcat, Reenogreena, GLANDORE, Co. Cork, Eircode: P81 XW59, Republic of Ireland).

Supported by Carraig-na-gcat, Goethe-Institut Dublin, The Glucksman, University College Cork and Sleeperhold Publications
