www.curator.ie / 23.06.2012: stills from footage shot by John Kennedy and Ciaran Walsh of the premiere of ‘Drawing the Water’ in Milltown, Co. Kerry on 23 June 2012.


‘Drawing The Water,’ a collaboration between artist Pauline O’Connell and www.curator.ie, was officially launched  by Irish arts minister Jimmy Deenihan T.D. in Milltown, Co. Kerry on Saturday 23 June 2012.  The event involved a premiere screening of the film ‘Drawing The Water’ and supporting documentation. There was standing room only in an event that went on long into the night with céilí dancing, tea and buns, reminiscence and chat in the best tradition of gatherings in rural Ireland.

‘Drawing the Water’ is a public art project by artist Pauline O’Connell. It was commissioned under the Per Cent for Art Scheme that is administered by the Arts Office of Kerry County Council. It was filmed by Ciarán Walsh in September, on location in Milltown and in a studio in Ballyheigue. Post production was managed by Ciarán Walsh.
