Ghost Ship, Tallaght Community Arts Centre
Tallaght Community Arts Centre, Co Dublin
This work is also a documentation of the story of the making of the Ghost Ship for the Nissan Art Project in association with IMMA in 1999. Cross’s ship was covered in luminous paint and at nightfall illuminated to glow and fade, evoking the poignancy of the disappeared lightships and the artist’s childhood memories, linked to her father’s love of the sea. Cross sees this work as honouring “the memory of the lightships, whose presence was held dear around the Irish coast”.
The IMMA mediator staff will facilitate workshops with five national schools in response to Ghost Ship. Cliona Harmey from IMMA’s artist panel will also carry out a focus on project with a local secondary school.
This exhibition is supported by the Department of Education & Science.
