Description

The Trial

The Trial is a compelling visual art installation on healthcare and human rights in the Irish criminal justice system. On multiple screens, three characters – Tommy, Charlie, Neili – tell the real life stories of those who have been held and worked in Irish penal institutions during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Trial is exhibited in the resonant space that is Kilmainham Gaol Courthouse.

Directed and produced by Visual Artist Sinead McCann, The Trial is a collaborative artwork with men from the Bridge Project, Dublin, who have lived prison experiences, and research by UCD historians, Catherine Cox and Fiachra Byrne.

Script Writer: Sarah Meaney / Video Production: Sixbetween
