FionaGannonBookLaunchFiona Gannon, Into the Dark with the Light On. Presentation and Book Launch. Thursday, February 23, 2017, 5pm; The Douglas Hyde Gallery.

Thursday 23 February marks the launch of artist and researcher Fiona Gannon’s book Into the Dark with the Light On. This is the first title to be published by arc public press, established by the MA in Art & Research Collaboration (ART) at IADT.

At the launch event, Fiona Gannon will discuss her research on the relationship between the ‘human’ and the ‘animal’, taking two active interfaces as lenses through which to think this difference. The ha-ha, a feature of landscape architecture, will be considered alongside a combination of the gesture of an outstretched hand and the cameraphone; historical and current mediators of human experience with the herds of deer in the Phoenix Park in Dublin. Gannon will explore the ways in which these interfaces differentiate a human subject from an animal ‘other’.

All are welcome and admission is free. There is no need to book a place.
