“Commissioned to celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at the University of Limerick, the works in WATERMARK reflect both its discovery for the first time, as well as longer relationships with the institution throughout its history. David Lilburn’s work for the exhibition extends his reimagining of the idea of the map – so beautifully, playfully and gracefully explored in his In Media Res series. For WATERMARK, Lilburn maps both in time and depth – building maps on maps of his memories of the music, dance and festivals of the Academy throughout its twenty years on the banks of the Shannon.”
