AaBKC Social er en netværk-event udviklet af Mary, der er tænkt som et alternativt format, hvor kunstnere kan samtale og skabe nye møder. Under Marys ophold hos Aarhus Billedkunstcenter vil hun facilitere en række frokostmøder, der giver mulighed for at drøfte et nyopstartet projekt, dele ny viden og research eller forslå aktiviteter og begivenheder. 

 

Join Mary Conlon at ARoS Public when she will present The Museum of Mythological Water Beasts - a multi-year project about, along and on the River Shannon. 

The event will take place at Aros Public and we have limited seats, so if you are intersted please send us an email on assistent@aabkc.dk to sign up for the event. The event includes free admission to Aros and a sandwich. 

Expert monster-hunters will be enlisted to comb the river at low tides for suspicious objects in the search for mythological water beasts. The quest will take the brave participants to the six remote monastic islands in the estuary at dawn and dusk when sightings are more frequent and can be monitored via Beast-cams installed at each island. The monks who were once the keepers of the beasts disappeared suddenly at the start of the last century and the islands have remained deserted ever since. However the river tours will be led by local fishermen, amateur historians and seanchaí whose special knowledge of the river will help the hunters track the best hiding places. The collected clues and treasures will be displayed in Ormston House to lure the elusive beasts into the city in the hope of reclaiming their lost belongings.
