Two and-a-half years in the making, Mark Garry will transform the MAC for the duration of this exhibition. The Upper Gallery will feature an indoor meadow with hundreds of

dried flowers accompanied by an eight hour musical composition made of prerecorded birdsong.

Songs and the Soil will also include a new film work entitled An Lucht Siúil (The Walking People.) which explores the relationship between Irish travellers and Modernism 

And for the duration of BCF20, the exhibition itself will undergo its own transformation, as local children from the Colour of Sound exhibition ‘take over’ Garry’s work.
