A unique off-site video installation of Stalactite (2010) by Dorothy Cross [above] at the old Malt Grain Store on the historic site of the former Beamish and Crawford Brewery, South Main Street, Cork.

Stalactite is a video of the Great Stalactite of Doolin Cave, County Clare, which has grown over the course of a million years in its black chamber. Here, a boy soprano stands beneath the spectral object, singing nonverbal sounds in a curious juxtaposition of the paces of human and geological time.
