‘SAPLINGS’ is based on a speakeasy my granddad worked + drank at in New York in 1920’s. Run by my great uncle Johnny – it supported my father’s family until its closure during Prohibition, resulting in my father + his brothers being sent home to a 1930’s County Tyrone.

‘SAPLINGS’ starts with the bottle, as object, and explores our relationship to material, as physical but flawed representations of inner experience.
