Fota Arboretum and Gardens will open a Live Interactive Installation with Spoken Word Performances, Photo and Poetry Exhibition, and Site Responsive Collaborations of continued set titled 1.Safety.Sanctuary.Set of Web. from ‘Language of Life: Language of Humanity’ project by Mummy Harmony, Maria Wojdylo Kelly.
Maria Wojdylo Kelly, who promotes herself as Mummy Harmony invites you to a multi-media journey through a chosen themed set out of thirty included in the entire project. In this instance it is 1.Safety.Sanctuary.Set of Web.. It has been explored in diverse locations ranging from galleries, libraries to parks and now Fota Gardens. This set includes work of Carol Anne Connolly, Jan Koerner, Maria Minguella and is seeking collaborations to expand each set in response to the site and the installation. It is a very organic process, a constantly changing organism, hence evolving with each place and each contribution both from artists and the public. The public is as significant, and, in fact, at the heart of the whole project. Conditions are created for the public to immerse themselves into the theme of the set through photography, poetry and one- to-one spoken word and through the live-research installation called The Silent Conversation Installation, where people answer questions to a given questionnaire and interact with answers, which are displayed and have been collected on previous occasions.
It is for those who wish to reflect upon a theme through visuals, sounds, direct contact, performance and explore how this theme ties with well-being and a connection to nature, both human and environmental. The theme of safety is to be examined from subjective perspectives where there are no requirements, parameters or limitation, yet, the artist ties it to a concept of sanctuary, and each place it is presented in, seeks viewers’ attention to determine what it is about this particular place that evokes a feeling of sanctuary. In this instance, the stunning Fota Gardens’, which provides the public with an opportunity to do so from 01.10.-02.11.18. Furthermore, this parallel extends to the idea of potential and how it can be fulfilled individually and collectively and how all these factors contribute to the overall analysis. Through the multi-layered approach and mediums, numerous outcomes are possible such as becoming relaxed, being inspired, motivated, empowered, having listening skills enhanced, being a part of education and research. As participants put in their own words: ‘I believe this experience is a great idea and I would recommend it to anyone’, ‘very enjoyable and worthwhile’.
Special thanks to the OPW for facilitating the exhibition at Fota Arboretum & Gardens.

IRELAND POETRY DAY: SURPRISE POETRY

Moving Image Poetry Stream

Poets, who live in Co. Cork, have been chosen and poems by each poet will be read out by Mummy Harmony, Maria Wojdylo Kelly who will also be performing her poem Safety.Sanctuary.Set of Web.. Come and join this one hour poetry surprise either at 11.30 or 15.30 in  Cork City Libraries. Main themes occurring in the poems are nature, inner inspection, inner exploration, social analysis and health.

A stage will be set with a projection of images. Poems will be read out while movement interpretation will be added by Helena Palmer. Each performance of the poem Safety.Sanctuary.Set of Web. starts with public chanting/repeating of 6 phrases, which are taken from a poem to be performed afterwards. Also, the performance will be accompanied with a sound of a singing bowl and chimes.

Stream will be formed by reading works of poets: Paul Casey, Rosaline Blue, Stan Notte, Niall Hearne, Cara Kursh, Ciran Mac Artain, Alexander Philip Spillane; a spoken word performance by Mummy Harmony: Maria Wojdylo Kelly, and movement by Helena Palmer.
