Description

Entirely hollow aside from the dark

Entirely hollow aside from the dark at Creswell Crags is an immersive psychoacoustic sound event taking place inside an ancient natural auditorium carved into the underbelly of the British countryside. Using the cave as a physical metaphor for the mind the cavern personifies the consciousness of Mother Earth as she struggles with her worsening mental health, brought on by the human distressing of her body. In the darkness, an audible inner dialogue echoing Mother Earth’s thoughts and regrets unfold and a symphony of choreographed sounds shifts around the cave mirroring processes of the human mind. Entirely hollow aside from the dark simultaneously aims to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and encourage environmental sustainability.

Entirely hollow aside from the dark is an artwork created by Irish Artist AlanJames Burns, made in collaboration with writer Sue Rainsford and sound editor Ian Dunphy.

Entirely hollow aside from the dark at Creswell Crags is the first international event of this artwork outside of Ireland.

These events taking place on September 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 2019 at 20:45 and 22:00

Entirely hollow aside from the dark at Creswell Crags is funded by the Arts Council of England and Culture Ireland.

This artwork was originally commissioned by Fingal County Council Arts Office as part of Resort Revelations, 2016.
