Seoidín O’Sullivan

Crex crex, crex crex, crex…, 2023

An installation that formed part of an ongoing research project Crex crex, crex crex, crex…, that studies the history and legacy of the corncrake, a migratory bird that has almost disappeared from the island of Ireland. The installation consisted of drawings made from historical postal stamps featuring the corncrake, as well as seed deposit containers, and “corncrake dollar” coins.
