tairseach / threshold

MFA Interim Exhibition

Brittany Baldwin | Shannon Castor | Ellen Ferrier
Letitia Hill | Aisling Jelinski | Sam Kahn
January 4-15, 2021

(UPDATE: Due to Level 5 restrictions in place fron December 31, 2020 – February 1, 2021, this exhibition will not be open to the public.)

Tairseach, the Irish word for threshold, indicates a point of convergence and crossing over. Here in the heart of the Burren, land meets sea, past meets present, and mind meets body. It is in this place that six artists came together: Brittany Baldwin, Shannon Castor, Ellen Ferrier, Letitia Hill, Aisling Jelinski, and Sam Kahn.

The permeability of boundaries is exemplified by the threshold – that thin veil between ‘here’ and ‘there’. Including themes of mind and body, place and space, and temporality and materiality, tairseach / threshold explores the merging of six diverse practices through the lens of the Burren.

Coming Full Circle

In 1975, world renowned sculptor Richard Long created “A Circle in Ireland” on Doolin Point, Co. Clare. Over the years the stone circle has fallen into disrepair. Burren College of Art students and staff are collaborating with Clare Arts Office, Creative Ireland and Galway 2020 to restore the circle during a performative event that will happen at the site on a date to be decided in December. The performance will take the form of a ceremonial group ‘restoration action’ on the elemental, karst limestone coast line near Doolin Pier.
