Water Witching is an exhibition of new work by artist Shelagh Honan. Her lens-based narrative features photography, sculpture, video, sound and installation, all of which pivot around an audio video called Aistear.

This film touches on themes of mortality, transcendence, infinity and the abyss. Its co-ordinates are those of modernist poetic cinema, with long takes which are sometimes fixed in slow motion. The central figure moves through a series of landscapes and appears in a co-temporal state, existing within her own frame of time and communing with nature through a dream-like sequence.
