Gorging Limpet is a collaborative performance/installation project by composer Karen Power and me.
Using sound, film and video, Gorging Limpet events draw on post-industrial space to create an uncanny vision of a world that remains almost, but not quite, recognizable. A mysterious zone of elusive sounds and mysterious images that powerfully interact to immerse viewers in a ghostly realm of submerged memory. The substance of this vision is the textures of the places evoked and the materials used, the decaying fabric of old buildings and old 16mm, 8mm and VHS images, of forgotten corners and uncannily familiar, if unsettlingly hard-to-place, sounds.

So far, there have been two Gorging Limpet performances:
The second, enacted on a smaller scale, took place at Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin, in August 2013 as part of the Experimental Film Club event ‘Spectres of Memory’, curated by Esperanza Collado.
Gorging Limpet was made possible thanks to a project award from The Arts Council of Ireland /An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
