Hollywood, Harold’s Cross and the Palimpsest/ Rianú Project

Dear oh dear, there’s an awful difference between Hollywood and Harold’s Cross. Lads, Lads, I could’ve told you that.  But when I woke up this morning there was a gazebo out on the green, in front of our house. No, three gazebos, and then the lorries arrived, and the vans and the trailers and the generators and the cables and the mobile café and the men in hi-vis jackets, and the walkie talkies, and the coffee machines and the Gardaí and…  and then it started raining, bucketing down from the heavens. It never rains in Southern California…

Apparently, they’re shooting a film called “Mammal” and it’s starring Rachel Griffiths (from Brothers and Sisters) and Barry Keoghan (from Love/Hate). Now, as you know, I’m no expert when it comes to the movies but I’ve made a short video in the meantime (an indoor one) about the Palimpsest /Rianú Project at the Pearse Museum.

See below – it’s an overview, panning around the 3 rooms of the exhibition. It’s just two and a half minutes long.



The Palimpsest/ Rianú Project, curated by Claire Halpin and myself, continues at the Pearse Museum until the end of November. The museum is open every day except Tuesday, from 9.30 – 5.30pm. Drop out for a visit, it’s in St.Enda’s Park in Rathfarnham and there’s a nice coffee shop there too.
