In The Flesh

In the Flesh is a collaboration between artist Bridget O’Gorman, historian Brenda Malone at the National Museum of Ireland Collins Barracks and writer Sue Rainsford. This new video, Slow Tear, focuses on the museum store at Collins Barracks and the artefacts stored there - many of which were donated by the relatives of those who were involved in the 1916 rising. In the film these objects are never revealed to the viewer instead they are described through Rainsford's script which gives a voice to the artefacts which have been protected from destabilising atmospheric contaminants, human touch and light.
