in nervous twos and threes

in nervous twos and threes

Installation Dates: June 20th-24th.

A culinary response by Arbor to the work and inspiration behind the paintings of Kevin Mooney. This site-specific installation will feature in the gallery during Kevin Mooney’s solo exhibition “Seeing Things” to coincide with National Refugee Week.

This responsive work explores the dialectics involved in the notion of homeland and the idea that food is integral to ones memory of place. These memories are not fixed,  but remain as an intangible essence of place, delicately framed within a subjective reference.

“We sat tight
On short cross-benches, in nervous twos and threes,
Obedient, newly close, nobody speaking”

Extract from, Seamus Heaney, Seeing Things
