Details:

Landing Place was a Commonage-commissioned project that took place at Pigeon House Hotel, Dublin. The site includes remnants of a fort, a harbour, an electricity generating station and a hotel. I designed a one-sheet publication featuring twenty-eight photographs that exposed the area’s ecological, geographical and architectural character in different ways. The publication included a text by Hollie Kearns, a key for matching the images with their respective captions, and a line-drawn map of the wider Poolbeg area.

From the Press Release:

Over the weekend of Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of May 2013, Landing Place presents a series of contemporary art works by Sven Anderson, Aoife Desmond, Fiona McDonald and Ema Nik Thomas, which explore the Pigeon House Precinct and its context in the Poolbeg Peninsula, Dublin Bay. Through collaborative work, a series of small research events and the activation of a studio space at Pigeon House Hotel, four new pieces of work in sound, film, installation and performance have been developed between January and May 2013. Landing Place is a Commonage-commissioned project, curated by Hollie Kearns and Rosie Lynch and developed in partnership with Dublin City Council Heritage Office.
