The exhibition consisted of video and installation, and its main focus was the Irish language. Two videos and three installation pieces were created leading up to and during the 6-week residency at Leitrim Sculpture Centre. These works all explored the Irish language from the viewpoint of a foreigner. The videos and installations attempted to deal with universal issues through the medium of the Irish language, and drew on literature, political texts, geography and philosophy, all taken from non-Irish sources.
The project itself and the preparations for the residency at Leitrim Sculpture Centre went on for about a year; first through intensive language studies over 5 months, and subsequently through 3 weeks of volunteering at Gaelscoil de hÍde, in Oranmore, Galway, in the spring of 2016.
