New dates for spectacular outdoor installation in Connemara


Mirror Pavilion by artist John Gerrard will now be presented in Connemara in March 2021 

John Gerrard’s stunning outdoor art installation, Mirror Pavilion, Corn Work, a centrepiece of Galway International Arts Festival’s Autumn Edition and a significant event in the Galway 2020 European Capital of Culture programme, got a huge reaction from audiences over the last number of weeks at the Claddagh Quay in Galway.

A striking structure clad in highly reflective mirror set against the backdrop of the Claddagh basin, the work uses cutting edge technology to deliver a hyper realistic virtual landscape, characters and performances focused on the current escalating environmental crisis.

A work of two parts, the second part of the project, Mirror Pavilion, Leaf Work, due to be unveiled in October 2020, will now be presented at Derrigimlagh Bog, Connemara on new dates in March 2021 instead.

It is the aim of Galway International Arts Festival and Galway 2020 that as many people as possible experience Mirror Pavilion, Leaf Work. They have therefore made this decision as current restrictions limit international, and some national visitors, who wish to view the work in Connemara.

Mirror Pavilion, Leaf Work will now be unveiled on 20 March and remain in situ until 11 April 2021.
