重訪Revisit by Éanna Mac Cana
During the summer of 2017 Éanna Mac Cana was diagnosed with a serious illness which led to intense hospital treatment. After being discharged from hospital he began to make and exhibit work in response to this. Mac Cana’s work takes shape in themes of mortality, faith, loss and superstition rooted in family history and old Irish customs.
Revisit is a selection of staged and spontaneous scenes Mac Cana has produced between 2017 and 2019. Some enacted close to the hour of death. This video work is interlinked and fractured by the memories and nightmares of hospital and the imagined realities that begin to emerge.
Featured in this work is a Caoineadh (Keen). An Irish custom to lament the deceased.
在2017年夏天Éanna Mac Cana被診斷患有嚴重的疾病以致他住院就診。出院後，他開始以創作和展覽回應這經歷。Mac Cana的作品以家族歷史和古老的愛爾蘭習俗對死亡、信仰、失去和迷信為基礎來構成主題 。
