Áine Phillips: Tree Girls
“You’ll want to take a closer look at this beautiful work that hides deeper meanings behind the pretty silk and frills.”
- Festival Director.
The woods are dressed in silk and taffeta. At first glance this phantom‐like work strikes you as a surprising apparition – enchanting and uncanny. Look deeper and the layers reveal themselves. The “Tree Girls” installation is a memorial to lost girls, monumentalising individuals who could otherwise be forgotten.
All over grounds. All Day. Every Day.
