Updated: Dec 15, 2021

Listen to Sarah and Aideen discuss their upcoming work together on Aideen's mammoth work 'By Slight Ligaments'.


The title of the exhibition By Slight Ligaments comes from Mary Shelley’s novel, Frankenstein, emphasising the exhibition as a body of parts, stitched together through the collective talents of Barry and her many extraordinary collaborators. Included are writer Sinéad Gleeson; harpist, Aisling Lyons; composers and musicians, Fiona Shiel, Stephen Shannon and Cathal Murphy; and Canadian Inuit performer RIIT ᕇᑦ. Barry has also commissioned work from leading designers, Margaret O’Connor, Tropical Popical and master carpenter, Charles Perpoil.
