Join us for this fascinating guest lecture by Dr. Melanie Otto, Assistant Professor, School of English, Trinity College Dublin. Dr. Otto’s research interests include postcolonial and Caribbean studies with a particular focus on the connections between literature and visual art.
Our current exhibition The Artefacts Project by Lorcan Walshe represents a search for artistic and cultural roots in a period when national narratives were being challenged and reconfigured as a result of an increasingly diverse Irish society. Lorcan Walshe explores the idea of whether or not we can have unmediated access to the past and emphasise that our reading of the past always involves an act of translation. Walshe seeks to translate the Irish Medieval Artefacts through the process of painting and drawing.
In this special lecture, Dr. Otto seeks to interpret the visual language of Lorcan Walshe and The Artefacts Project.
