TALAMH TEANGA  –  ‘An rud is annamh is iontach’

FÉIRÍN FEASA – The Culture of Objects

Nuair a amharcann muid thart orainn achan lá tá scéaltaí le fail in achan áit, ní amhain I mbéal na ndaoine, ní amhain inar gceantar féin ach fiú ansin faoin tí sa bhaile. Nuair a chaithim féin súil thart ar an tseomra tchím roinnt rudaí a bhfuil scéal acu a bhfuil I bhfostú I mo chuimhne. Cé acu bronntanas ó seanchara, abhar inteacht a thug mé na bhaile ó thar saile nó Féirín Feasa beag a tháinig chugam ó mo mhuintir féin.

Is é seo go díreach an abhar a thug muid ar na daltaí óga I Rang Doirin, sa dara bhlian ar Phobalscoil Chloich Cheannfhaola taighde a dheanamh air I mbaile s’acu féin. Cén cineal rudaí a bhí ina shuí ar leac na fuinneoiga, ar teallach na tineadh, sa chófra sa chisteanach nó faoin leabaí? Nach iontach an rud é nach rudaí amháin iad, ach scéaltaí, scéaltaí saibhir a bhfuil mar chuid do beatha s’acu féin.

An object does not carry such a potent charge just because of the things that can be reproduced so well with our technologies – the form, the materials, the decorative skills. What makes it pulse with life is the idea of the people who touched and where touched by it. It is the hands that made it, the eyes that feasted on or feared it, the terror, wonder or delight it evoked. It is the simple awe-inspiring thought – this thing connects me to my ancestors. Fintan O’Toole

Once again this year the students of PCC took us on a journey to the past. The second year class Rang Doirin shared the hidden stories and history of objects from their homes. With the guidance of Máire Nic Fhearraigh, Paul Bonar and Sean Fitzgerald the students explored the stories these objects held both from a personal family perspective and in a wider social context. In using his drama skills Paul Bonar brought back the life of the object with the students posing the questions,  Where did it come from? Who owned it? Did that person make it? What did they use it for? What did it mean to them in their lives? In doing so a door was opened to ancestors, to a generation Rang Doirin did not know in person but in seeing, touching, owning this object and knowing its story they were connected to loved ones that they will never meet but that they will never forget. Sean Fitzgerald and Máire Nic Fhearraigh used the medium of art to encourage the observation of the object through Still Life drawing and the students themselves then aged their drawings like old pictures making them yellow and cepia using tea bags. This then became the visual theme for this year’s Make a Book Project, ‘FÉIRÍN FEASA – The Culture of Objects’. Many thanks also to the staff of PCC who were very supportive and involved,  Helen Moran, Noirin Friel, Marion McBride, Anne Marley, Helena Nic Ruaidhrí, Sarah Ball. Maith sibh Rang Doirin!
