Sirius: Aoife Desmond Programme
This programme features three films by Irish artist Aoife Desmond, all exploring the relationship between humans and nature.
sirius – harbour’s mouth, commissioned by SIRIUS and shot in the Cork Harbour area, is a meditation on architecture, history, and place through a performative engagement with the SIRIUS building and its surroundings. Passage Migrants and Graving Dock Revisited, shot at Dublin Port, likewise connect landscape, movement, and body, and draw on themes of labour, gender, and memory.
