E*gress is an audio-visual installation at West Cork Arts Centre which engages with the paradox of absence and presence and its relation to dementia. The installation was made by artist Marie Brett and musician Kevin O’Shanahan in collaboration with a number of partner organisations. It takes as its inspiration the work of Boss (2004) around Ambiguous Loss Theory. The work will be launched on Thursday 25 July at 6.30pm.
