Alanna O’Kelly is one of Ireland’s internationally renowned multimedia artists. She works in video, film, sound, photomontage, text and performance, fusing the ritual and the radical in innovative ways. She has a deep interest in place, people, community, our past and its effect on our present, the shaping of our culture, our identity and relationship to the world community and she is drawn to the particularities of place and context.
Developed specifically for the Schull Workhouse site, this new performance relates to Alanna's historical work, resonates with the history and legacy of the site, and amplifies the themes explored in the Coming Home: Art and the Great Hunger at Uillinn. Working with a remarkable line-up of artists, including Mícheál Moley O Súilleabháin, Ruah Berney Pearson, Libby Seward and Pól Brennan and with local adults and school children, Anáil na Beathe will be a unique performance event at this highly charged site for a live audience.
