Poetry Cocoon / Cocún Filíochta is an interactive, bi-lingual exhibition where the audience can engage with poetry in a restful, calm space. The exhibition, which centres around themes of healing, nature, love and connection, includes work by four brilliant west Kerry poets, Emer Fallon, Nicholas McLachlan, Simon Ó Faoláin and Maggie Breen and poetry films by fab filmmaker John Kennedy.

 

Settle into a cosy armchair, listen to poetry on headphones (interspersed with natural sounds of the peninsula between poems), read beautiful poems printed on Awagami Kozo paper, (some with gorgeous linocut images by Emer Fallon commissioned especially for this project), watch a powerful poetry film by John Kennedy and be at your ease.

*******************

Is taispeántas idirghníomhach, dhá-theangach é Cocún Filíochta; is féidir leis an lucht féachana taitneamh a bhaint as filíocht i spás ciúin, suaimhneach. Obair ó cheathrar filí iontacha ó Chorca Dhuibhne, Emer Fallon, Nicholas McLachlan, Simon Ó Faoláin agus Maggie Breen, chomh maith le scannáin filíochta leis an scannánóir John Kennedy, atá san áireamh sa taispeántas seo, a phléann le téamaí an leighis, an dúlra, an ghrá agus na nasc/caidrimh.

Socraigh síos i gcathaoireacha compordacha, éist leis na filí ar chluasáin (le glóranna ó nádúr an leithinis idir na dánta), léigh na dánta álainne atá crochtha ar na ballaí agus clóite ar pháipéar Awagami Kozo (roinnt dóibh le íomhánna álainne líonóilghearrtha, á choimisiúnú don togra seo, agus á chruthú ag Emer Fallon), féach ar scannáin filíochta le John Kennedy agus bí ar do shuaimhneas.

Tob-Léirithe/Pop-up Performances: on Saturday & Sunday @ 1.20p.m.
