Portlaoise based poet David Delaney and artist Jayne Louise Kelly have once again collaborated to mount one of their inspirational displays of work at this year’s Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally.
In:Mortality explores the fragility of the human mind and human nature. It also explores each and everyone’s relevant strengths, weaknesses and powers to overcome. The central themes behind the installation appear on one level to be simple – life and death - but as one begins to peel away and explore the different layers, these themes begin to crossover and become more complex. Leaving one asking the question - when you stare life and death in the face simultaneously, do you run and not think about it or do take the opportunity to share your own thoughts and explorations? All are encouraged to check out the piece at this weekend’s Picnic.
