Cuckquean - Eimear Walshe
Cuckquean Eimear Walshe
A large-scale sculpture of a cuckoo will be installed on the ground of the Eye (the museum’s open-air gallery). The glass wall will be adorned with drawings and texts depicting a dove, a duck and a cuckoo. To Walshe, these birds represent non-standard behaviour with reference to sexuality and rearing.
The Department of Sexual Revolution Studies
The installation follows on from the project entitled The Department of Sexual Revolution Studies, created by artist Eimear Walshe (1992, Ireland) at the Van Abbemuseum back in 2018. The project explored how modern-day forms of sexuality can help us better understand the relationship between sexuality and today’s society, which extends to the realms of policy-making, accommodation and technology.
