Exhibition: Cyril Ó Flaithearta — Oilithreacht

13th September 2017 - 24th September 2017

Cyril Ó Flaithearta

Oilithreacht

Oilithreacht is a response to fourteen climbs to the pilgrim site of Mauméan. An important pass through the Maamturks and is visited by thousands annually.

It was this journey to Mauméan and the time spent there in February 2017 that has inspired this series of work. I explore within my own belief of what a pilgrimage really is; the leaving behind of one’s material self; to explore the beauty of what’s out there; the attonement for wrongs; when the only sound one hears are the wind and torrents of water; this place where light, God and simplicity rule and I hope that I have done it justice.

Cyril Ó Flaithearta is a native of Inis Mór, Árainn, where he lives with his family. He is a co-founder of the Oileán Project.
