――― In venue ―――

The Lighthouse at the Library is the outcome of a visual arts commission by Dublin City Council and the Royal Hibernian Academy of Arts for a primary audience of 8-12 year-old school children at Ballyfermot Library Creative Hub.

In its original context the lighthouse was presented as a mystery. Delivered one morning to the library with a tiny letter, its creator and purpose were unknown. Each visiting child dutifully sat through a live introductory talk and was tasked with becoming an investigator: to find clues; study the lighthouse and supporting materials; and to contribute a theory to solve the mystery.

Created for children but intended for multiple audiences, vast oceans of research supported the making: lighthouses, light-homes, light towers, street lights, “Corporation houses”, post cards, the heavy dark and the ghost of a hand.

Visitors can experience the rooms of the lighthouse in detail via the 3D viewer and torches at the desk.
