The Well

‘The Well’ is a new multiscreen video and sound installation which will screen as part of Junction Festival 3-9 July 2017. Commissioned by Clonmel Junction festival and supported by Fingal Arts.

In 2016 Mc Guinness devised a performance intervention at St Patricks Well inspired by the story of Bridget Cleary. She is drawn back to the well this year with a new work that explores themes of femininity, ritual, and our relationship to place.

Working with dancer Liv O’ Donoghue and the guardian of the well David Flannery, the artist combines real and fictive performances and stagings to create an immersive installation.
