Wednesday 17th July, 1–2pm: Public talk by Dr Jessica Smyth

This public lecture by Dr Jessica Smyth, recently awarded a research project named Passage Tomb People, will be looking into the architecture of passage tombs and will be exploring the wider social and economic background of where and how people lived and sustained themselves at that time. https://passagetombpeople.com/methods/

Dr. Jessica Smyth is a lecturer in the UCD School of Archaeology, has a long-standing interest in daily life in prehistory. Dr Smyth is currently Principal Investigator on 'Passage Tomb People' (IRC Laureate Consolidator Grant 2018-2022), investigating the social drivers of passage tomb construction in the 4th and 3rd millennia BC. Initially looking at settlement and domestic architecture in the Neolithic, she now uses both laboratory and library to explore early farming communities.



Friday 26th July, 6–9pm: Closing event with Polyglove and Santa Wrek
To close this exhibition, the public will be invited to take part in a closing event where the electronic music’s rhythms will recall the mechanics of fabrication, the repetition of gestures and yet the production of a specific social time seeking to reveal the relationship between body, time and artefacts.

PolyGlove are a Dublin based electronic duo comprising of Stephen Maguire and Niall Conroy. Pairing the best of their analog and digital equipment they cultivate their own distinct form of techno - with performances marrying their array of hardware synths with custom made psychedelic visuals.

Santa Wrek is a solo electronic music project that focuses on combining classic acid lines, industrial driven sampling and house inflected rhythms to create work that seeks to land somewhere between lighthearted matinee and late night horror. An atonal cacophony.
