First Dead Man Buried Under Soil
There is a part of Ireland’s history which includes a mysterious enclave that entwines with the very soul of mankind: a coastal site named Árd Ladrann in County Wexford. Between myth and matter, shivers and shapes, land and sea, lies Ladra, the first dead man buried under Irish soil. In the eleventh century Book of Invasions its manuscript records the origins of the ancient Irish from the creation of the world, to the myth of the man and the beyond. These environments inspired Kate Swift to unearth this hidden story entwined with her own unconscious roots. This universal ancestral story questions mortality and the mystery that a landscape retains. Swift sought to unearth the deeper existence and soul of this land, its people, past and present.
