Sneem exhibition

Minister Jimmy Deenihan will open the ‘Here in Paradise’ public art exhibition in Sneem on Saturday 31st May 2014 at 6pm.
‘Here in Paradise’ is the creation of internationally renowned German artist Jochen Gerz who spent most of his professional life in Paris before settling in Sneem. Well-known landscape photographer Peter Zoeller contributed to the photographs.
Gerz asked forty inhabitants to respond to one of three questions, “What would you wish for the future of Cul Fadda (Sneem’s ghost estate), for the future of Ireland, for the future of Europe?” Their answers and their photographic portraits are the self-portrait of a community.
The exhibition will be free and accessible to all in the North and South Squares of Sneem Sculpture Gardens and runs all summer until 18th September 2014.
