Abstract/Summary

Tina O’Connell and Neal White have collaborated to present a large-scale installation. Study for a Pavilion: Askeaton combines various elements of national identity and material culture to begin to imagine a pavilion dedicated to life and shape of Askeaton itself. This expansive act incorporates a geodesic dome and a video re-imagining of Sean Keating’s now-destroyed mural from the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. In an accompanying series of digitally manipulated photographs, stolen and lost sculptures by Helen Chadwick, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth are transposed to appear as apparitions and ghostly figures at twilight in public spaces in Askeaton.An annual residency programme entitled Welcome to the Neighbourhood situates Irish and international artists in the midst of Askeaton each summer, while thematic exhibitions, publications and events often occur
