Opening Event for Uillinn_The Fallout
Saturday 1 April at 2pm
Gallery Conversation - Sérgio Leitão in conversation with Ann Davoren, the opening event of Uillinn_The Fallout (1 April to 6 May), an exhibition installation of objects, video and interactions.
Over three residencies at Uillinn (2022/2023), Portuguese artist Sérgio Leitão developed a contextual mixed media installation titled UILLINN_THE FALLOUT. The exhibition addresses Skibbereen's past and present contexts, from the 1631 Sack of Baltimore, that led to development of the Capital of the Carberies (a video entitled How This is Different From Westphalia_Islands II), to a colourful and vibrant town (as presented in the whole installation), including found graphic elements and objects as well as different production and research tools, as is current in the artist’s practice.
