Collection of Dwellings…. hand built stoneware pieces.

Ciara chases the ghosts that remain in the built environment when the dwellers have moved on, what the anthropologist Melanie van der Hoorn called ‘buildings that speak’. The Mantel piece, the sacred heart lamp, the once new carpet and faded wedding picture. ‘The oldest body remembers the youngest physical encounter’.  She reflects on how the rural towns again empty as young folk move from Leinster Street to Houston Street, from the People’s Park to Central Park. These are personal revelations telling universal stories, it is essence of Minihan’s seminal work with Beckett.
