Liffeytown at the Fringe Festival


The Fringe Festival is set to bring a lot of exciting stuff to Dublin’s venues. One artist, however, will be bringing exciting stuff to Dublin’s river: for the duration of Absolut Fringe, Fergus McCarthy will have his installation ‘Liffeytown’ floating in the Liffey.

A collection of Monopoly-board inspired houses, the installation will be lit up at night to make it visible at all times.
These installations are rapidly becoming one of my favourite parts of the Fringe season. Last year’s Playhouse (where Liberty Hall was illuminated with animations submitted by the masses) was a masterstroke – not only because I had the joy of seeing my own creation beamed out to the city. I’m looking forward to this one just as much.
