Irish bog - still from Emily McFarlands film
Thursday 08 April 2021 to Wednesday 28 April 2021

Curraghinalt is the first work in a three-part film series –  Dtan-a-goo-saran-dthu (The Wind’s Changed) – which was newly commissioned for the 39th EVA International (2020 – 21), Ireland’s Biennial of Contemporary Art, as part of EVA’s Platform Commissions initiative selected by Merve Elveren, Anne Tallentire and Matt Packer.

The project has also partnered with aemi, an Irish organisation that supports and exhibits moving image works by artists and experimental filmmakers, for an online screening of Emily McFarland’s Curraghinalt video.

Curraghinalt captures the voices and testimonies of local community members on day 387 of their occupation of lands that have been acquired by Dalradian Gold, a Canadian gold-mining company whose plans will see the landscape of the Sperrin Mountains transformed.
