Sample-Studios member, Elinor O’Donovan who has been commissioned by Cork City Council and the National Sculpture Factory to create a new piece of work for the Island City public sculpture trail which launched on December 12th.
Elinor’s work ‘Winter Sun’ will be a 10 minute long moving image work projected onto the Triskel Christchurch building on South Main Street from October 2024. Inspired by the view of Cork City from the top of Patrick’s Hill, the work celebrates the many different people who share this city and make it their home. It will be a warm summer sunset preserved for when it’s most needed during the cold winter months.
Elinor’s work will be revealed in October. In the meantime, the five other Island City artworks are in place and are ready to be explored. To learn more about the sculpture trail and to receive updates follow @IslandCityCorkSculpture on Instagram.
