An Invitation (2021)

In this co-creation, Mike McCormack and I explore the following questions: What has become of grief during this time of pandemic? Is it another emotion or faculty to be organised, mediated, ordered, disciplined? Work premiered as part of Arts in Action at National University Ireland Galway, 28 April. The video on YouTube includes screening of work (20 minutes) followed by conversation between Mike McCormack, EL Putnam, and Marianne Kennedy.
