A zine reflecting on pieces of the old Ireland that provide reminders of identity in a city scrambling to forget itself. Cranes replace church steeples as the most prominent features of the skyline while hotels replace homes. This project focuses on showing familiar symbols through a new lens, and new struggles alongside those of the past.
The Marian Year is a collection of photography, visual art and creative writing musing on changing values in modern Ireland and fading tradition in the face of a neoliberal future and the pain of the past. With dynamic montage built around the collaborative visual art of photographer @1eurofiddy, visual artist @spicebag.exe and painter Carl Hickey, and featuring new writing by Caelainn Hogan. 1
