Journeys to the Centre of the Earth
The Dock’s new exhibition titled Journeys to the Centre of the Earth is all about conversations – conversations on architecture, planning, landscape, and people. There is so much talk in the Irish media these days about ‘thinking our way out of the crisis’ that we’re in.
Guest curator for The Dock, Maurice O’Connell gives us an opportunity to do just that by presenting various examples of groups of people who are thinking, talking – and taking action- in response to the complex of challenges we face in our rural, urban and in-between landscapes. It’s the latest installment of an ongoing series of exhibitions that have taken place at The Dock these last five years under the heading of Architecture.
Maurice O’Connell, originally from Dublin, now living in Cornwall, is an artist who works with architects, theatre practitioners, private business and local community developers to create enterprises, educational programmes, theatre manifestations and structural development plans. He is a regional adviser in the community/voluntary sector, director of a private philanthropic business, a theatre director and a lecturer at Combined Universities, Cornwall.
The Dock invites you to take part in the conversation!
As part of the exhibition Gallery 3 will screen a number of films throughout the week.
