Our Certainty (2013)

Our Certainty was a one-off event created for I Won’t Say I Will See You Tomorrow, in Kilpatrick, Co. Wicklow. At dusk, participants walked from the evening’s main forest site to a nearby field, on the land surrounding Kilpatrick House, once home to Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. Arriving in dense darkness, participants were guided into a field by the headlamps of an idling car. Once gathered at the base of a hill, the lights were cut out and shortly afterwards, a large-scale pyrotechnic lancework display was set alight. The text, emblazoned in white fireworks – then intensified in red, embodied the sentence ‘IT IS’.
