Christina Reihill


Installation Date : 2013



The Present, was opened by Mary Mitchell O’Connor T.D. at Monkstown Church Crypt.

Visitors to the installation were offered an interpretation of the way we live our lives. Road X observed the wonders and limits of the material world. Road Y provided a narrative on the choices available to our
internal selves.

The architecture of the 18th century crypt lent this work a highly evocative “container of soul”.

In keeping with the festive season, The Present celebrated all that is joyous and sorrowful in life.

“For us – there are no right or wrong choices – only consequences and if the work achieves an awareness of these choices – it achieves its artistic vision” said Christina. The Present was assisted by James Mooney.
