Is sraith saothair ealaíne é Faoi Rún atá suite amuigh faoin spéir i Ros Muc, agus a dhéanann iniúchadh ar an bplé idir tírdhreach, aeráid agus cultúr na háite. Is é an t-ealaíontóir Árannach Seán Ó Flaithearta a chruthaigh Portráidí Criathraigh i bportach i gcroí-lár Ros Muc. Léiríonn siad beirt phearsa a bhaineann le Ros Muc; sin iad Bridget Aylward, Queen of Alaska agus an rinceoir cáilithe ar an sean-nós, Cóilín Sheáin Dharach Seoige. Tugann siad ómós don áit lárnach atá ag an bportach i saol muintir na Gaeltachta. Baineadh na portráidí amach as an bportach le sleán agus innealra, mar a bhaintear móin, agus is ionann iad agus na trínsí agus díoganna báite mórthimpeall orthu.

Sníomhann an t-ealaíontóir Paul Kinsella tírdhreacha fisiciúla agus fíorúla le chéile i saothair grianghrafadóireachta a chuireann i gcás áit ina bhfuil an t-am atá caite, an t-am i láthair agus an t-am atá le teacht ag tárlú ag an am céanna. Spreagtha ag an bplean a caitheadh i dtraipisí bóthar iarainn a chur síos sa cheantar, ceistíonn a shaothar buaineacht na timpeallachta.

Due to COVID concerns organisers will present Faoi Rún online as a film by film-maker Joe Lee documenting the installations in the landscape. The film is available online from December 16.  The self-directed element of the project will come later in the year.

Faoi Rún is a series of site-specific artworks set on the Ros Muc peninsula tracing the interplay between landscape, climate and culture. Inis Mór artist Seán Ó Flaithearta’s Portráidí Criathraigh (bog portraits) pay homage to Ros Muc personages Bridget Aylward, Queen of Alaska, and sean-nós dancer Cóilín Sheáin Dharach Seoige. Composed of bog and drowned sky, they echo the filling and emptying of seasonal turloughs, and reference the ingenuity of traditional ways of working within and with the natural landscape.

Merging the physical and virtual landscapes, digital media artist Paul Kinsella explores the simultaneous alternatives of Ros Muc’s past, present and future. Inspired by unrealised plans to build a railway to the area, the works highlight the tension between the seeming permanence and mutability of place.
