The inspiration of ‘Echoes´ was drawn from historical records of a part of the Killarney Lakes´ history where tourists were taken by boat to the ‘Eagles Nest´. During these trips the call of a bugle or the firing of a cannon lured the Golden eagle, which resided in the eagles nest at the time, from its nest. The situation of the ‘Eagles Nest´ meant that such sounds created multiple echoes. The parallels, which exist between the elements of echo and reflection (both having qualities of duality, repetition and distortion) are explored in the installation. Ciara Moore´s work also documents the landscape which is a theme currently examined throughout the gallery´s temporary exhibitions programme.
