The Malt Grain Store has never been accessed for an art installation and this project marks the Irish premiere of Stalactite (previously shown at Frith Street Gallery). Curated by Rachael Thomas, this site-specific project sets up a spatial and temporal dialogue between the building and the artwork. Beamish and Crawford Brewery, which has been producing porter and stout since as far back as 1650, is one of the oldest industrial sites in Cork city and houses the remains of a unique mashing and milling plant. This site and the Crawford Art Gallery form part of the legacy of the philanthropic, Cork-based, Crawford family.
