1994-1999 (inks & mixed media on paper).
This publication of WATERFALLS makes available both books that compose
the poetic project her/story:eye (1994 – 1999).
Excavating saying, riddle, lore, tale, song, lament, elegy, drawn from Irish mythological, ancestral and folk traditions, socio-political history, (particularly the Great Famine of 1845-52, the clearances, dispossession and exile), as well as personal mappings, meditations, family oral histories, her/story:eye is a multi-dimensional, visceral performance, interrogating its own trans/formations as it floods and explodes acoustic-aural-visual-verbal-sculptural force fields across red shifts and WATERFALLS in a passionate, radical, physicalised installation of languagings im/possibilities.
