POST_ is a newly commissioned audio-based artwork designed to allow patients and the wider public to imaginatively travel to familiar parts of the West of Ireland. Using a scripted voiceover and ambient recordings from regions served by the Saolta University Health Care Group, POST_ evokes the particular character of the West of Ireland and interior associations with place, memory and home. Its seven ‘chapters’ are inspired by objects found in a former post office which the artist re-opened as a public art project in Killinaboy, County Clare. The former postmaster's books, essays, photographs and language tapes serve as prompts to immerse the listener in the social, cultural, and natural sound of a year’s turning.
The artwork will be launched and available online in Autumn 2020.
