Pallas Projects/Studios are pleased to present Laura Ní Fhlaibhín—trailblazer the ninth exhibition of our 2020/21 Artist-Initiated Projects programme.
A tally of carbon mounts .
Falling into lines and columns and sheets
vanishing from the miniature curtain rail
And the wood panelling parted
Trailblazer swooshing down that tunnel
Past the polished panels
into vast brightness that is sweet ecstasy
trip of wonder and love
He goes headfirst and on his ass
Giddy love tunnel whoops
Arms extending and dancing
It is purely joy and cuming from now on
To be spoken with steadfastness and will and determination for parting panels
