Passage of Sound eschews narrative, establishing instead co-ordinates which are principally those of modernist poetic cinema; long takes sometimes in slowed motion, fixed camera positions with the figure moving through space in ‘real’ time, no sense of a contextualised narrative, no character motivation, no causality, and no dialogue. The soundtrack establishes an evocative register that connects the Irish viewer with the saliences of a memorialised past and a memorialised landscape.
Shelagh Honan is a visual artist based in the west of Ireland. Working predominantly in video, photography, projection and installation. Her practice concerns the development of new strategies to present narrative through video, sound and projective environments. In 2017 she was commissioned by Clare County Council to create Passage of Sound an outdoor video installation which ran for the duration of the festival.
