Abstract

From the publisher: This limited edition, bespoke book brings together four scores by Irish composer Benjamin Dwyer, poems by Kimberly Campanello, commentary by NDP editor / publisher Jonathan Creasy and viola performance by Garth Knox. The book was designed by Rossi McAuley and his Distinctive Repetition studio (Raglan Rd., Dublin).

Each book in the first edition of 84 copies was used in performance and exhibition at the Barrow River Arts Festival, Borris House, Co. Carlow, May 16 - 17 2015 (curated by Maya Homburger and Barry Guy). Knox and Campanello premiered the piece at the launch.

Dwyer's score and Campanello's poems were written in response to the enigmatic sheela-na-gig carvings found in Ireland. The two artists traveled through the country documenting what they found and making field recordings and drawings. They completed the pieces in the Heinrich Böll Cottage, Achill, Co. Mayo.
