Translating Linen

25 September 2021 - 22 October 2021


Exhibition showcasing the award winning Translating Linen project, which features a digital music piece created from the DNA structure of flax overlaid with the sights and sounds of Northern Ireland’s Linen Mills, and a large scale artwork on linen.

Visual Artist Robert Peters was invited to respond to Dr. O’Kane’s translation of Linen DNA pictorially. He created an image that attempts to encompass the historical use of flax and linen from neolithic times to its demise in post-industrial Ireland. This image has been printed onto linen to form a large scale wall hanging.
