Palimpsest, a two-week installation, book-ended by two performance evenings that took place in the Dance Limerick Space from 31 August – 14 September 2014 as part of Limerick National City of Culture. Created by John Galvin: Visual Artist, Raw Nerve Noise: Sonic Artist and Mark Carberry: Choreographer, Palimpsest comprised both a large-scale multimedia installation and two unique choreographed performance evenings. The architectural space of Dance Limerick (St John’s Church) was re-imagined as a recording device, one that has stored traces of the memories and experiences of the inhabitants of Limerick City. These fragments of memory were then ‘released’ from the walls through an immersive and multi-layered audiovisual experience. This large scale work also saw additional live improvised dance performances by London-based dance artist Alexandra Baybutt. Here is a selection of the work reduced to 7 segments for screen.
