Walk Ceremonial circular walk in Carraig-na-gcat

Circular hike with Tobi Maier and Lars Fischer Ward Heirwegh/ Sleeperhold Publications

Sun, 16.12.2018



In advance of the winter solstice, the German art critic and curator Tobi Maier together with the German architect Lars Fischer organise a circular hike from Carraig-na-gcat (Glandore, Co. Cork, Ireland) to the Drombeg Stone Circle, and back again.

Constructed during the later period of the Bronze Age, approximately 3,000 years ago, the Drombeg Stone Circle, also known as the Druid’s Altar is a megalithic place of ritual and ceremony dedicated to sun worship.
In the course of the walk the artists will ponder communal arts projects such as artist organised processions and parades in consideration of the rituals originating from megalithic stone rings. The group will have a limited edition of a circular steel ring commissioned by Sleeperhold Publications with them on the walk.  

Meeting point for this circular ceremony on Sunday, December 16, 11am at Carraig-na-gcat is the Josef & Anni Albers Foundation’s new artist-in-residence program in West Cork. (Carraig-na-gcat, Reenogreena, GLANDORE, Co. Cork, Eircode: P81 XW59, Republic of Ireland).
