About Threading Place
Threading Place is a site-specific visual-art project. Through the mediums of photography and field recording, it uncovers the varied interpersonal connections that form the backbone of rural communities in Co. Wicklow. Further, it discovers the places that are vital to their well-being.
A person is photographed in a location in Wicklow that is important to them. They then nominate a ‘connection’ of theirs, who is subsequently photographed in their chosen place. This sequence continues to document three threads of people, all of whom are connected in different ways.
The exhibition is staged outdoors in three public spaces in Wicklow Town. At the Black Castle, Barrow Green and at the beginning of the Murrough River Walk you can discover the portraits and listen to an audio composition of interviews and sonic recordings of the places photographed.

The exhibition runs from September 20th until October 11th 2023 and is part of Wicklow Culture Night which takes place in Wicklow town, Friday September 22nd.
Join the Threading Place team and sociologist Dr. Nikki Dunne, in Wicklow Library on Culture Night from 6-7.30pm as they discuss various aspects of the project, from inception and theme, to production and build.
