The Women of the World Arklow is an intercultural group of women with more than 20 members in the area of Arklow Ireland. They meet once a week to get to know each other and to exchange their different experiences in art, crafts, cooking etc at the same time they seem to have lots of fun. That group of women is in a way very symbolic for 100 MIGRATORY. Thanks Kristina Skum!
Also one image from Saint Patricks Day in Arklow 17th of March 2013 and an image of Black Castle in Wicklow town – built in the 12th century.
And…who can resist a Guinness at a local Irish pub – here Fitzgeralds in Avoca ( famous from the BBC Tv series Ballykissangel)
There are mountains and countries and people. There are Sami people living all over the world and one of them is Kristina Skum from Ammarnäs. She is living in Arkow in Ireland with her family and have been looking after glass vessel no. 68 for half a year. In the slideshow you can see images from the vessel in her house amongst other precious things, it’s an image from the plane arriving to Dublin in September 2012 and images from the Wicklow Mountains National Park from the 23rd of February 2013. You can also see the lake Lough Tay in Sallygap, sometimes called Guinness lake partly because it looks like a Guinness as well as the fact that the Guinness family own land down by the shore.
My personal favourite is the image of no.68/100M in front of the Glendalough Monastery with St Kevins church and the thousand year old round tower in the background. Saint Kevin founded the monastery around year 500 A.D. It is something with houses built by stones and this image brought me back two decades ago when my husband and I owner built a cottage in Australia, out of stones and rammed earth.
