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.
