‘Ghost Light’: Scéalta ón Lú Trí Sholas (Stories of Louth through light) is an exhibition of images using cut paper, card and light displayed in the windows of An Táin Arts Centre, depicting scenes from stories taken from the collection of the National Folklore Archive. Visual artist Maeve Clancy will fill the windows of An Táin Arts Centre with a visual interpertation of stories collected by Dundalk school children in the 1930s, where tales of myth and legend sit beside stories of superstition and magic. The work will be on display and lit up at dusk every evening for all to see and read from the street.

In the seven days leading up to the launch of the exhibition, local actor Paudie Breen will perform a story from the collection which inspired the project on An Táin Arts Centre’s facebook page. The first story will be performed on Sunday 13th of December at 7pm and every night thereafter until the launch on Sunday 20th December. Join us each night on Facebook Live.

Exhibition Launch & Artist Talk | Sunday 20th December at 7:00pm Live from An Táin Arts Centre, an online event with the artist in conversation with Director, Paul Hayes.
