At Sea

Gary Coyle

For over a decade Gary Coyle has photographically recorded his daily swimming ritual at the Forty Foot promontory in Dublin and has documented, in his notebooks and diaries, the mood of the sea and the idiosyncrasies of the characters who swim there regularly. This performance sees the artist sitting on stage behind a desk, projecting his photographs of the sea, telling stories, some funny and some sad. Gary Coyle, who was recently elected into Aosdána, is a member of the RHA. At Sea was originally commissioned by Project Arts Centre, Dublin with support from the Arts Council.
