Gatherings (Transitory Encounters)

Gatherings (Transitory Encounters) took place over three nights and was produced as part of the exhibition Trapezium. Trapezium included work by Orla Whelan, Sinead O’ Reily and Janine Davidson. A psychic sleep session inaugurated Gatherings, (Transitory Encounters). For the second event, The Materialization of the Phantom Muse, Dr. John Cussans conducted a séance with the feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman. This was followed by musical performance by Neil McAvinia and his band VooDoo Wray. A public screening of The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner, (1974) directed by Werner Herzog marked the final event.

The 17m x 7m handmade mat used in Gatherings (Transitory Encounters) remained in the space for the duration of the exhibition.
