Meet the Artists: Julie Merriman and Augustine O’Donoghue (Dublin)

August 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for a conversation around seagulls and port scenes, protest and printmaking. Dublin-based artists Julie Merriman and Augustine O’Donoghue will discuss their creative commissions for the Ports, Past and Present project, on show at the Liffey Corner in the CHQ Building through Heritage Week.

Julie will explain her use of obsolete office copying materials in her work, which draws on the history of ‘mark making’ in order to create striking modern prints. Augustine will take us through the making of her sound installation on the ecological plight of herring gulls in the Dublin area, whose habitats have been built over or destroyed by humans.
