At Mirrored River
Linda van Deursen, Jan Kiesswetter, Armin Linke & Alina Schmuch (Eds.)
Irish-born artist Enda Bowe finds inspiration for his work in the Gaelic concept teannalach (pron. “chann-ah-lack”), a word from the west of Ireland referring to a deeper state of awareness, an awareness of who we are, the questions we ask, and the dreams we project. In At Mirrored River, Bowe constructs an unrecognizable geographical picture of a town that has no recognizable image. Through his pairing of quiet uncluttered color portraits of the town and its people, the soul of the community is slowly revealed. Bowe, who lives and works in London, is an observer of the everyday spaces we inhabit and our ordinary daily lives. To Bowe, the ordinary or overlooked is where universal beauty, magic and possibilities lie. A poem by Scottish poet John Glenday sets the mood for the introduction and award-winning playwright and author Lucy Caldwell contributes a new short story.
