Chelsea Cafe Project #10 Dundee to London via Dublin Sinéad Bligh

Dundee to London via Dublin

Sinéad Bligh

Dundee to London via Dublin is a retelling of past work after reading Derek Jarman’s text Chroma, A Book of Colour – June 93. With the multiple narratives intersecting Chroma, and a heightened awareness of colour in mind, this work was made. It ruminates on colour associations, current narratives and past memories, which create this whole. The work brings together past video and sound work made on various journeys between Dublin and Dundee and current sound work made in London. Shown here are single elements – stills of the film Dundee to London via Dublin. 2014. The rest of the piece exists online.

This work, and Sinéad Bligh’s interests, lie within social collaborations between space and its agents, addressing the nature of this collaboration between viewer/user, subject, object and situation and its by-product experience and knowledge – In turn how these social interactions and spaces create the relationships that produce art.
