A man of pleasures
HD video with sound, 2012
The video is based around a seventeenth century obituary of a man who was rumored to be part of the Limerick Hellfire club. The Artist used this material to create the sound track, to feed into the sense of mystery and rumors that surrounds the history of the Hellfire Club. Through working with members of the local drama group and situated in an Askeaton pub, the artist creates a surreal space in which members of the local drama group, that lie collapsed in post party unconsciousness.
Through working with sites and people of the locality the artist recreated a contemporary purgatory. Commissioned for Askeaton Contemporary Arts, The Hell fire club project 2012.
