Cassandra’s Necklace

Alice Maher

Description

Cassandra’s Necklace is a two-screen film installation which challenges the mythological archetype of the voiceless female. The protagonist wanders a cavernous landscape in search of a stolen voice. Charlie Murphy plays mythological figure, Cassandra, with Rossi O’Donnell Bradley as the young girl. The sound track is by Trevor Knight.

Cassandra’s Necklace was first shown as part of Alice Maher’s retrospective, Becoming, at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (https://imma.ie/), in 2012.
