Seapoint, Sea, Sky and Spires is an exhibition curated by Prof. Eoin O’Brien in association with dlr Lexicon. The exhibition includes photographs acknowledging the rich history of Seapoint, recording the visual impact of the spires of the four churches scene from the sea. The photographs are what a swimmer might see. Swimmers are granted a vision and a peace that is denied those that are land-bound, namely the blending of the colours of sky and sea at Seapoint and the four spires (St Michaels, Monkstown Parish Church, St Patrick’s Church and St John’s Church). A mark of gratitude to a little stretch of water that has been to may, a place of solace and inspiration.
