Artist Talks Glenkeen Garden Residencies with Doireann O’Malley & Elisa T. Bertuzzo

The Crespo Foundation is delighted to continue the series of artist talks featuring Glenkeen Garden residents. Located in Roaringwater Bay in West Cork, Ireland, the Glenkeen Garden Residency has been active since 2021, welcoming diverse groups and individual artists in this unique setting under the motto “ArtNature/NatureArt”. In the talk series, the artists will showcase the work and research developed during their residency. The inaugural exhibition of the residency program will open in Frankfurt this Autumn at the new Crespo House at Weißfrauenstraße.

The project Maolaigh explores silenced voices in Ireland within the entanglements of gender, ecology, colonialism, religion, and mental health through the lens of three main protagonists of the O’Malley clan: filmmaker Doireann O’Malley, Doireann’s grandmother Margaret O’Malley, and the historical figure of the pirate queen and national heroine Grainne Mhaol. By revisiting personal and historically significant locations in the west of Ireland, Doireann O’Malley and researcher Elisa T. Bertuzzo engage in real and speculative conversations with human and more-thanhuman actors.

The talks, moderated by Ben Livne Weitzman, will be held in English.
