The Main Guard, Clonmel will host ‘Place, and Time’ by Vincent Hannon. The exhibition will take place upstairs in the great chamber of the Palatinate court.
Western philosophy hinges on two concepts, one from Heraclitus, πάντα ῥεῖ (panta rhei) “everything flows” ,”No man ever steps in the same river twice” and the other, ον είναι (on einai) “Being is” from Parmenides. The flowing and the fixed. Wondering about things, and attempting to put order on them was what the Greeks were about.
Here in Ireland we have two main traditions with similar tensions to those two very contradictory concepts. Which we are attempting to reconcile, and have been for a very long time.
