Órlaith Cullinane, Fiona Keenan O’Brien & Zoë Conway
Motion Marks is a new collaborative visual arts project from An Táin Arts Centre’s Off-Site programme between visual artist Órlaith Cullinane and An Táin Arts Centre’s former Dancer in Residence 2020, Fiona Keenan–O’Brien. Órlaith has been drawing dancer Fiona in movement and these images have been painted onto large flags and will fly at Dundalk town centre locations.
The work deals with restrictions, limitations, and boundaries – physical and mental – and our movements, freedoms, and adaptations within them. There will also be an accompanying audio track specially composed by Zoë Conway, An Táin Arts Centre’s Trad Musician in Residence 2021, that can be accessed online at each flag. A poster at each location will contain a QR code that you can scan with your phone and listen along to, as you view the flags.
Motion Marks will launch on Friday 16th of April on Facebook at 7pm, where Director of An Táin Arts Centre Paul Hayes will discuss the inspiration and processes undertaken to create the project with Órlaith and Fiona. Join for the launch and then take a stroll around Dundalk and enjoy this collaborative visual arts experience in an urban space.
