‘The Park Project IV’ at Moylurg Tower
‘Subliminal || Sublime The Park Project IV’ is a newly commissioned visual art event taking place in the Moylurg Tower at Lough Key Forest Park, Boyle on Saturday 26th January 2019 at 7pm.
Designed by artist Lucy McKenna, this promises to be a spectacular event not to be missed.
There are a very limited number of spaces available for members of the public to view the display from the tower and booking is advised.
Subliminal messages are stimuli that lie below our threshold of conscious awareness, but if concealed messages are experienced, can our minds construct a hidden world behind the conscious curtain? These subtleties could be overlooked in our day to day lives, but perhaps there exists key markers for unlocking a moment where the Universe reveals it’s inner workings to us.
Using local history and folklore, Lucy McKenna takes Lough Key Forest Park as a location to peel back a layer of reality and reveal the potential for sublime visions, experiences and information. The Park has experienced sightings of mermaids, UFO’s, giants, ghosts, lights in the sky and portals to other places. Time has elongated, shortened, or disappeared altogether.
To experience the sublime is to experience something which is momentarily, paralysingly beautiful, but also evokes fear and commands respect. This event will be a short light-filled experience bringing you inside the Moylurg Tower in Lough Key Forest Park to see what you can see, with a hope to invoke the sublime.
Access to the tower for this event is very limited.
Audiences are also invited to view the work from the vicinity of the Moylurg Tower if maximum capacity is reached.
The event will also mark the launch of a newly commissioned text by Visual Art Writer in Residence, Joanne Laws.
Visitors are advised to dress warm
