Desert Island Artworks: ‘Nephin’ in Glasshouse by Niamh O’Malley

Desert Island Artworks: ‘Nephin’ in Glasshouse by Niamh O’Malley

There are three video pieces in our current show, Niamh O’Malley’s Glasshouse, which I would risk life and limb to rescue from shipwreck:  Quarry, the detailed and attentive study of a working limestone quarry; the eponymous Glasshouse, a formal achievement with exquisite qualities - arguably the finest piece in the show; and Nephin, a film which surveys at a distance the mountain of the same name in Mayo, in the west of Ireland.  Despite the compelling qualities of the other two, if there were space only for one USB memory stick in my lifejacket, it would have to be given to Nephin.
