For a limited run, from March 15 – 24, Doyle will also present Made in Dublin, a dynamic multi-media immersive installation designed by Niall Sweeney and featuring music by David Donohoe, words by Kevin Barry and a nine-screen cinematic surround-sound panoramic work of 10,000 images.
The exhibition also sees the launch of a new publication by the same name Made in Dublin, published by Thames & Hudson, which brings together the Dublin trilogy plus new photographs as one in an exhilarating, cinematic book featuring specially written text vignettes by prize-winning author Kevin Barry. “There is a threaded pulse that runs beneath the surface of this street. Sometimes, in one of those quiet, eerie moments of the night when the city briefly stills itself, as if to open out its sighs, you can almost hear it — you can hear it as a kind of low, insistent throbbing, almost a rhythmic sequence, and at once you’ll know that it contains dark information. It tells us that we are all being drawn in the same general direction. It tells us that we are all being led along the thread of the pulse. It tells us that we are all on the way out.” — Kevin Barry, from Eamonn Doyle: Made In Dublin, Thames & Hudson, 2019.
The exhibition will continue to Fundación Mapfre, Madrid, September 2019.
