In Dublin They Really Tell You Things
A new video installation exploring the world of writer Pat Ingoldsby.
This new video installation by acclaimed Irish director and photographer Seamus Murphy explores the world of Dublin poet Pat Ingoldsby. Pat’s poems cover a very wide palette of genres. They rhyme, and they don’t. They are sad, and humorous. Tragic, and absurd. They are witty and nonsensical, erotic, rude, realist, surrealist, irreverent, melancholic, moving, down to earth and whimsical but, above all, they are unaffected and profoundly human. They describe life – its absurdities, its madness and its tragedies, but also its beauty, its sadness, its fun and its wonders.
Murphy’s new video installation is a tender, sympathetic and unflinching look at the world of a poet resolutely writing from the outside, an utterly unique artist who connects with thousands of readers around the world.
The installation is accompanied by a publication under the MoLI Editions imprint – In Dublin they really tell you things – Pat Ingoldsby, Selected poems 1986–2021 – available exclusively at MoLI and in a limited edition hardback print run of 1000 copies.
