Wound with a Tear
Wound with a Tear is an off-site project taking place for one week only around the Trinity College Dublin campus. Ruth Clinton and Niamh Moriarty have devised a route around the grounds using photographs, texts, and installations to guide visitors through a strange narrative. The works playfully tease out questions about the gradual and more immediate deterioration of the archives and buildings which give Trinity College its reputation of permanence and history.
Visitors are invited to collect a map from the Douglas Hyde Gallery and embark on an investigation which will allow the opportunity to view this very familiar environment in an unusual and mysterious light.
The modest sensibility and use of small gestures is reflective of previous Gallery 3 projects organised outside of the Douglas Hyde Gallery. Two further projects, by Rhona Byrne and Ruth Lyons, will also take place in Trinity College over the coming months.
The Douglas Hyde Gallery thanks the artists for their enthusiasm and hard work, and the Berkeley Library and Museum Building for opening their doors to the project, which has been organised by Michael Hill.
