The time of endless expansion, extraction, and exploitation has passed. In order to escape the gravity of the familiar, these now redundant modalities of living, we must decolonise our minds and configure new ways of conceptualising and inhabiting the world.
Ireland’s national pavilion at the Biennale Architettura 2023 puts our islands’ diverse communities, culture, and experiences right at the centre of the discourse surrounding our shared future. To the forefront of our imagination. The installation offers an immersive experience that shifts between the local and the territorial, the micro and the macro, to make explicit the implicit intelligence of these most remarkable of places.
