Applogies about any shortcomings in the recording quality at times. Ralph and I will be meeting up over the Summer months sometime and intend to have a futher non-remote recorded conversation. By that time we will have plenty to discussincluding the new art and reseach project to be launched in May.
Coming soon: A conversation with Clare Milledge.
Clare is an Australian artist based in Sydney She is currently exhibiting at the Sydney Biennalle. The description of the installation reaads ‘Imbás: a well at the bottom of the sea, draws on the Story of Sinann, an Old Irish story/dindshenchas about the forming of the river Shannon. ‘
The Sinann story and the postcast was a ‘source’ ideas for the installation. I, very much, look forward to talking with her sometime in May.
