a la recherche de Samson
Marie Roux’s interests in geology and the various roles that stones and rock find around the Askeaton area resulted in Flying Stones, a series of photographs detailing a local limestone quarry, alongside documentation of a night-time encounter and pyrotechnic intervention with Samson’s Stone, a site often referred to in local folklore and located south of Askeaton. These images were displayed in Tierney Moran’s Hardware store where they took on an almost utilitarian role, as if they could be used as tools, measures, or even adhesives to measure, split or hold together Askeaton itself.
