Introducing Mirror Pavilion by John Gerrard

5 August 2020

Galway International Arts Festival and Galway 2020 present Mirror Pavilion by John Gerrard

Mirror Pavilion by John Gerrard was commissioned by Galway International Arts Festival for Galway 2020, European Capital of Culture and will receive its world premiere as part of GIAF’s Autumn Edition programme from September - October, 2020.

The Pavilion is a beautiful and striking structure, with three sides and the roof clad in a highly reflective mirror and the fourth wall a high–resolution LED wall.

This structure will host two new artworks Corn Work and Leaf Work which will unfold on the LED screen presented in two locations; Corn Work at the historic Claddagh Quay in Galway City and Leaf Work at the spectacular 4,000–year–old Derrigimlagh Bog in Connemara. The works reflect and respond to the landscape of both locations.
