Hen’s Teeth X Egle Zvirblyte
For 2018’s iteration of Drop Everything, the arts and culture biennial on Inis Oirr, we worked with the event founder Mary Nally, and the amazing Lithuanian London-based illustrator, Egle Zvirblyte to create an impactful site-specific work.
For the week either side of the weekend festival, larger-than-lifesize characters appeared across the island. Giant bananas strolling across the grass, tigers looting the Plassey and a local gent playing his tin whistle took up residence. For the installation, Egle took inspiration from the island, its people, history and stories, and added a bit of her own trademark humour and style.
