The Thin Air - Visual Arts

Artist Talk: Cliona Harmey @ Sirius


This Friday sees artist Cliona Harmey in Cobh’s Sirius Arts Centre for a discussion around her practice. Harmey made a series of visits to Cobh and Sirius Arts Centre in both 2015 and 2016 as she continues to work on new projects. This new work will be discussed alongside a pair of short films made last year at Hawlbowline Naval base with members of the Irish Defence forces. Harmey’s practice has often taken on naval themes which was most notably executed in 2015’s wonderful Dublin Ships installation – see photo above.

The talk kicks off at 1pm on Friday with more information on this talk and the wider series This Must be the Place here.
