An Post announces GPO Witness History Public Art commissions
A visual arts collaboration between artists Alanna O’Kelly, Brian Hand and Orla Ryan – who will produce a contemporary art work titled ‘Stormy Petrel/Guairdeall’ and the Dublin Dance Festival – which will develop six new dance solos titled ‘Embodied’ – have been announced as recipients of the commission as part of the Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme.
‘Stormy Petrel/Guairdeall’ is a collaboration between visual artists, Alanna O’Kelly, Brian Hand and Orla Ryan, both Brian and Orla are artists from Borris. The project comprises a series of art works that will include performance, sound and artists’ publication.
Orla Ryan, on behalf of the collaborating visual artists, said about ‘Stormy Petrel/Guairdeall’: “Our collaboration begins with the symbolism of the Stormy Petrel, the world’s smallest seabird, as a metaphor for someone who is an avatar of change and whose appearance announces an oncoming storm. In 1916 the stormy petrel was an international symbol of revolution and the anti- colonial imagination. We are looking at the role of women couriers as ‘human telegraphs’, who memorised the Proclamation on their journeys out of Dublin on Easter Monday morning. Once the rebellion had started, getting back to Dublin was not straightforward”.
‘Carlow Arts Office is delighted to see two County Carlow Artists from Borris being awarded one of the GPO Witness History Public Art Commissions, Orla Ryan and Brian Hand. Congratulations to both of you and to Alanna O’Kelly!’
