Sinéid Codd: an installation of her ongoing series of island like sculptures, born 2019, brought together in the raw space of the iconic Observer Building, currently under refurbishment. This is a Coastal Currents 2020 Event.

About

Responding to the times we are living through, ‘a fuller acquaintance with the archipelago’ invites the viewer to navigate a co-created Lilliputian world. As observation gives way to imagination, it is possible to mentally inhabit the fossilized and fragile cast sculptures as a series of islands surrounded by sea. 

All islands are separated from each other, but some stand alone, while others are in pairs or groups. The now evident architecture and topology of the mostly bleached islands may suggest abandonment associated with a dystopian world.

Modelling an idea of the individual within the collective, through viewers’ curiosity and engagement, the installation elicits questions and ideas around community and relationship as well as culture and environment.
