"Unveiled Horizons" in Cork

Unveiled Horizons/Horizons dévoilés is an artistic transmedia interactive experience that develops the relation between art, digital media and social issue through an application, a participatory website and an outdoor installation questioning women’s horizons in port city around the world.

This provocative and beautiful work by French photographer Carl Cordonnier and Jools Gilson from UCC Creative, focuses on the hidden presence of women in port towns and cities. Through interviews and photography workshops, Unveiled Horizons collaborates with women from Cork on the composition of their portraits, which are exhibited on Custom House Quay.

The Cork iteration of this project joins portraits and stories of women in Dunkirk, Boulogne sur Mer, Tianjin in China, Tangier in Morocco, Glasgow in Scotland, and most recently in the Jungle in Calais.

Follow them in Cork where Carl and Jools met six inspiring women:
