Watch Mirror Pavilion, Corn Work by John Gerrard take shape on Claddagh Quay

​Check out this video to watch how this spectacular artwork was installed on Claddagh Quay in Galway city. Mirror Pavilion, Corn Work was unveiled Thursday 3 September as the centrepiece of Galway International Arts Festival's Autumn Edition programme.

The Pavilion is a 7-metre cubed mirrored structure, fronted by a high resolution LED screen on which two virtual worlds unfold. The LED screen will host two new artworks by John Gerrard; Corn Work in Galway City and Leaf Work in Connemara. The works reflect and respond to the landscape of both locations.
