Continuance by Clare Lymer is an installation of video works exploring the human experience of isolation suffered by tuberculosis patients. One of the five winners of the Trinity Creative Challenge 2016/17, Continuance will be shown at the Science Gallery, Dublin from 9 to 13 April 2017. 

Trinity Creative Challenge is a key initiative of Trinity Creative by Trinity College Dublin. Sponsored by the Provost of the University, this funding award aims to foster the development of ambitious and innovative interdisciplinary projects and works, ideally involving a collaboration with, or within, Trinity College Dublin.

Mycobacterium tuberculosis is the world’s most lethal bacterium causing over 1 million deaths per annum. Diagnosed with TB during the 1950s, Clare’s grandfather was kept in isolation for a period of more than 12 months. Clare produced Continuance in collaboration with Joseph Keane, Professor in Respiratory Medicine, Trinity College Dublin and Emer Hackett, PhD Fellow, School of Biochemistry & Immunology, Trinity College Dublin. Rachael Dease collaborated on the music and sound design and Brian Kenny on the projection design and lightscape visuals.

Supported by Trinity College Dublin, The Science Gallery, The Arts Council.
