The Known World

Jenny Brady

Description

‘The Known World is an experimental nature documentary with voiceover tracing the relationship of the Swan to notions of uncertainty and doubt. Concerned with the fragility of knowledge, the video presents a natural history of transition and change. Using images of Lough Lannagh and the family of Mute Swans that live on it, the work operates in the space between documentary and fiction. Its protagonist reveals a world where reality is a constantly evolving set of ideas. Commissioned by Mayo County Council for Landmark, a public art programme for Lough Lannagh, Castlebar.’ (Sourced from http://jennifer-brady.com/2011/landmark-public-art-programme-commission/ on June 6th 2016)
