Shining a Light
November 23 - December 16, 2020
Unwrapped 2020 presents Shining A Light
As the sun sinks low on dark December evenings, an ancient shadow, Cailleach Queen of Winter, emerges from the gloom as she slips down from the hills. The light of the moon and stars are at her fingertips and she can see what has emerged over time in each corner of South Dublin. With this gift of light, she brings knowledge, healing and peace.
The Unwrapped ‘20 artists continue to engage South Dublin’s communities through online activities and events. Beautiful illuminated window art depicting the gifts they would like to share with our winter visitor will be seen throughout South Dublin this December. How will you welcome this winter visitor and what will the light reveal about your community and neighbourhood?
Shining a Light is a celebration of rebirth and renewal, using the symbolism of light. Unwrapped 2020 is working with artists and local people to discover what is distinctive about the places and communities in and around South Dublin. Through art, film, animation, music and spoken word we aim to see them in a different light.
