As part of our Response Series, The Douglas Hyde is delighted to announce a Writer’s Response where writer Stephen Sexton will respond to the work of Bassam Al-Sabah and his current exhibition: IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE! TAKE THIS
For this project, Cliona Harmey has chosen to screen two moving image works which function as a springboard for a visual response to ideas of narrative, media history, infrastructure, verticality and technology.
A Glimpse of Common Territory by artist and film-maker Michelle Deignan will be shown, followed by a rare 16 mm screening of Side/Walk/Shuttle, a seminal work by American experimental film-maker Ernie Gehr.
