The Transcendence of Innocent Objects
Set in the Gaeltacht region of Gleann Cholm Cille, south-west Donegal, in an area named after one of Ireland’s patron saints Colm Cille, ‘The Transcendence of Innocent Objects’ is a visual exploration of humankind’s desire to forge polymorphous stories. This remote region is the resting place of 6,000-year-old pagan monuments and cultural artefacts dating back to the 18th century. Despite the harsh Atlantic elements, life flourishes in this charged and transcendent place. This series is an archaeological and lyrical exploration into the remnants of human activity in the area, juxtaposed against the prevailing natural elements of Ireland’s west coast. The images which look to the present, engage with traces from the past, reminding us too that we are all just passing through.
