Beyond This Point
Killybegs, County Donegal, is Ireland's second largest fishing port. Its economic importance to the fishing industry nationally means that opportunities to support local livelihoods through the tourism and culinary college are often overlooked. I work in a hotel kitchen nearby and often saw the visual, choreographed nature of how they move and work. I decided to produce this work with an aim to show how hard these chef students work and how closely the industries in Killybegs and beyond are linked through their need for fragile natural resources. In Beyond This Point the tourist attractions of the town are overlooked and the uninviting, violent processes are brought to the attention of the viewer and inconceivably shown to be visually graceful.
