A Tale of A Tub invites you for a conversation with Eamonn Harnett, whose work is currently on view as part of the exhibition Assemblages of Intimacy. After the talk you are welcome to join us for a drink on the terrace of the bathhouse.
For his new film Reflections upon an unknown country (2018) Eamonn Harnett travelled to the South West Coast of Ireland to explore the utopian ideals of his parents, who ran a llama farm during his teenage years. Harnett juxtaposes the material that resulted from this travel with his recent film Hopes for unity, self articulation and sustainability of a group (2018), which derives from his previous experience of staying with the Agta, an indigenous people who live in isolated mountainous parts of the island of Luzon, the Philippines, along with saltwater aquariums inhabited by North Sea anemones. Through a layering of personal and non-personal references of traditional world views and existing biotope systems, Harnett questions what physically and emotionally heeds us to become more involved, empathetic and at one with the natural environment.
