Epiphany of the Mulroy Bay II

Epiphany of the Mulroy Bay II

A temporary public spectacle, a collaborative project instigated by artist Sheelagh Broderick and lighting designer Chantelle Stewart of Guerrilla Lighting, with a team of volunteer torchbearers, photographers and videographers.

Abandoned fishing boats at Church Strand, Baltimore are iconographic landmarks of our past and our future.

Why an epiphany?

An epiphany is an illuminating discovery, realization, or disclosure: a revealing scene or moment symbolic of revelation or insight: it is a sudden manifestation or perception of the essential nature or meaning of something: an intuitive grasp of reality through an event usually simple and striking usually initiated by some simple, homely, or commonplace occurrence or experience.

An epiphany cannot be planned, this project is contingent on many factors: weather, tides, moonlight and torchlight.
