28th September 2007. Cork, Ireland. 2 hours 35 minutes
The carrying of water buckets for a period of hours, the endurance my body was subject to symbolized reparation and purification of the self, lack of reparation and purification within the Northern Ireland political context, there is still a refusal to acknowledge reparation in today’s political climate.
I dealt with issues of suffering purification reparation and redemption by walking around the streets of Shandon carrying two buckets of water, my breathing dictated the pace, and duration of this performance.
In relation to t this performance, it was contemplative and reflective in a public context. The central theme to this piece of work is of physical mental and an emotional journey towards redemption.
