Fiona Halinan | The you that is in it
Fiona Hallinan & Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh
July-November 2008, Irish Museum of Modern Art
The You That Is In It is a site-specific audio installation by Fiona Hallinan in collaboration with sound designer Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh which invites visitors to take part in an intervention into the spaces of the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Responding to the themes of the Ábhar agus Meon event series, Hallinan has created an 'audio detour' and work on paper which brings visitors from the Self as Selves exhibition in the Gordon Lambert Galleries through the landscape and grounds at Kilmainham. The work explores the palimpsestic qualities and percolations of art/heritage spaces. Responding to and departing from the programmed works of Self as Selves, the 'detour’ transects and undercuts traditional understandings of gallery spaces, physicalising the visual arts through synaesthetic participation and performance. This commission is facilitated by Ian Russell in collaboration with Christina Kennedy, Senior Curator, the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
