Físféis @ NGI

Four Gaeltacht-based artists, Andrew Duggan (visual artist), Eoin Mac Donncha (dancer and choreographer), Doimnic Mac Giolla Bhride (musician) and Blaithin Mac Donnell (visual artist) have made work relating to paintings from the Gallery’s collection: Jack Yeats’s Old Walls, William Evans’s Old Archways with Woman in Red Shawl, Galway, Mary Swanzy’s Allegory and Paul Henry’s A Connemara Village, respectively. The work will be projected on the exterior of the Millennium Wing at Clare Street and other locations in the Capital along with presentations across Gaeltacht regions on Culture Night September 20th, 2013.

Andrew Duggan is working to frame the individual within a particular context in his work, exploring both the geographical boundaries of the Gaeltacht and the physical confines set out in two of Jack Yeats’s paintings- Old Walls at The National Gallery and The Ball Alley at The Hugh Lane.

Tá Andrew Duggan ag iarraidh frámáil a dhéanamh ar an duine aonair laistigh de chómhthéacs áirithe ina chuid oibre, é ag cíoradh na teorainn tíreolaíoch  Gaeltachta agus na teorainn fisiciúil a bhí leagtha amach i saothar Jack B Yeats sa Hugh Lane agus sa nGailearaí Náisiúnta.
