A temporary work
of public art by Aileen Lambert Commissioned under the Ground Up programme
Clare County Council Arts Office 2006.
Clog an Chláir
is the title of a temporary public artwork by Aileen Lambert which takes
the form of a sound installation on Scattery Island, off Kilrush, Co.
Clare, from sunrise to sunset on the longest day of the year, June 21st
2006. The soundwork features bells which were recorded at various
locations throughout County Clare. A three minute soundwork will also
be featured on Clare FM on the evening of the Summer Solstice, June
21st, at the time of sunset on Scattery Island, shortly after 10pm.
Clare FM can be accessed online at www.clarefm.ie.
A number of seats are available free of charge on ferry crossings
from Kilrush to Scattery during the day, while a limited number of places
are also available on a specially chartered evening time crossing. Booking
in advance is necessary and all are welcome.Clog an Chláir can
be translated as Bell or Clock of Clare as there are two meanings of
the Irish word Clog. This artwork continues the use of the bell throughout
history as a means of marking time, as well as communicating with the
surrounding community.This place-based artwork is intended to deepen
people's experience of the physical, aural and social environment around
them. As rural society, up to recent years, predominately revolved around
the seasons, this work is intended to generate reflection on the changing
society in rural Ireland.
