Dawn to Dusk

Na Cailleacha is a group of eight female artists who came together on a residency in Ballinglen Arts Foundation, Ballycastle, Mayo in September 2020 to explore their attitudes to ageing, their bodies, their place in the artworld and how they relate to culture and heritage as older women.

Film maker Therry Rudin’s documentary followed the collective as they moved into this phase of their working lives.
The resulting documentary will be screened as part of the Mayo Bealtaine Festival 2021.

Director Statement

My primary passion is in making film documentaries, film performances and drawing.

In my films, I develop artistic investigations revolving around how perception produces experience and how experiences turn into memories. Dealing with how memory gives rise to meaning, and how this meaning is changed when confronted with new experiences. And of dreamlike desire, in (film – performance) how this meaning has changed when confronted with new experiences.

The Drawing Process is comparable to the film-making, by investigation and research that is central to concluding her drawings.
