In honour of William Desmond Taylor, a filmmaker from Carlow whose work had a global impact, Taylorfest has invited various artists to participate in a public art exhibition by interpreting the festival’s underlying themes of silent cinema and the art of the 1920s. Using graphic design, illustration and painting the artists have, at times humourously, engaged with the fashion, films and forms of the era and re-imagined them for a contemporary audience.
.
Using Local Authorities ‘Bee Visible’ signs, which are distributed throughout Carlow town, the exhibition presents a commissioned series of one-off works by artists working in various media. The Double A0 sized format presents the artists work in form visible to both pedestrians and motorists. Runs 8th – 22nd of September 2014.

Rísteard Ó Gormáin ís ainm dom. Instagram @eyemine. The triptych of posters is a deconstructive phenomenological exercise intended to focus attention using temporal juxtapositioning, on one’s ‘aboutness’. The story of cinema through to modern media provides an exquisitely detailed log of societal transition.
