TCD Celebrate the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

News feed for Trinity College Dublin.

Dec 01, 2010

Trinity College Dublin hosted a unique live performance by the Brazilian artist Beth Moysés  in celebration of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women recently.  The performance is hosted by Trinity College’s College Equality Office in association with independent Curators Roisin Russell and Lourdes Viso Ripoll and Women´s Aid and supported by the College Equality Fund.

Removing Pain took place with the participation of women volunteers who made a procession across campus from the Atrium to Physics Square, where they will develop the performance.  The performance resulted in the donation of a permanent public artwork to the College's Modern Art Collection, coinciding with its 50th anniversary celebrations.

Beth Moysés has worked on the theme of domestic violence for some time in a variety of media, often using group performances, photography and video or art objects.  Choosing a metaphorical and often dreamlike approach to investigate such a sensitive subject, her work becomes poetry written with images, inspired by women across the world who have decided to convert their experiences through creativity and continue their lives on a positive path.  A crucial aspect of Moysés’ work is the sense of possibility, strength and hope with which it is imbued.  This will be the first performance by Beth Moysés in Ireland.

Commenting on the significance of the event, TCD College Equality Officer, Karen Campos McCormack, said:  “This event will be an opportunity to give voice and visibility to an issue that is prevalent but usually hidden and silenced. We hope the performance will engage in a creative way a range of students and staff in College, as well as the wider public, with an international day celebrating equality and rights.  The event is particularly relevant to this year’s TCD Equality Fund theme Silent, Silenced or Private?, which aims to promote diversity in College.”
