Virgin Mother Whore…Woman

DEBUTE RELEASE AT FILMBASE, TEMPLE BAR, DUBLIN, MARCH 7TH TO 14TH 2018

Virgin Mother Whore … Woman”, a work of music and visual art, explores the interpretation of what is “female” through a three way lens. It plays with the connections and misconnections between lust, love and power between the sexes. Richly influenced by jazz, rock, and traditional Irish music, it playfully pokes at, or blatantly challenges, society’s perception of female roles and personal beliefs. The story telling within echoes with the sean nós of our ancestors. This project challenges the concept of the feminine as the fairer sex; it observes how we treat our lovers and the misinterpretations in communication between us; it finds hope in the hopelessness of death and the life cycle; it renews and repents.  

Themes at play throughout the work are “Apple”, “Trinity” and “Natural”
