Sarah Browne: Second Burial at Le Blanc
You are welcome to join us for the opening of Sarah Browne’s exhibition on Thursday 5 May from 6pm.
Sarah Browne’s new film installation Second Burial at Le Blanc focuses on the small French town of Le Blanc, where a coalition of local artisans and shopkeepers have created one of the last refuges for indigenous currencies.
Le Blanc is still accepting the franc as payment for goods and services in certain shops although it is technically no longer legal tender, and will continue to accept it until 17 February 2012, a deadline imposed by the Banque de France.
Produced against a backdrop of extreme economic vulnerability, both internationally and in Ireland, Browne’s project hones in on a community story that becomes the lens through which to examine the depth of emotional investment, and resistance to change, in economic systems.
Sarah Browne is part of PROJECT CATALYST, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
Sarah Browne has been supported by a Project Award from the Arts Council. The new commission by Project Arts Centre is being co-produced in partnership with Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, and will include a catalogue to be launched in 2012.
