Drowned Galway – Outdoor Photo Montages
Stuck in city traffic? Turn your head and you may find yourself immersed in a near-future Galway. City walls become backdrops for photo-montages by Joe Lee, visualising life in an inundated city, when yet another abnormal has become commonplace.
Set against familiar Galway views utterly changed by sea-level rising and floods, works include Irish and Palestinian artists: Sohail Salem, Emily Ní Bhroin, Deirdre Kennedy, Jeni Roddy and Arran Murphy with participants from Gliondar, Athenry Community Arts Group, Artists imagine how we might cope with this enormous and imminent change. How close does the future have to come before we care enough to act?
Drowned Galway Locations: Outdoors at Galway Atlantiquaria, Salthill, Spanish Parade Car Park Quay St, Shop St (Temple Lane), Fisheries Field NUI Galway, Galway 2020 Wavemaker Hub Augustine St and The Cornstore (accessed via Middle St)
