Description A co- commissioned artwork by Brian Duggan, curated by Helen Carey Ground Floor Galleries, VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow, Ireland. Within the extraordinary VISUAL Carlow galleries Brian Duggan’s installation will invite the public to roller skate in the gallery, echoing a different time and place, but one that connects to our present circumstances. The roller rink will be 25 Meters (m) = 82.02 Feet (ft.) long by 12 meters or 39.37 Feet wide and 7 meter high = 22.9 feet. Outlined in the banditti of the plains by A.S. Mercer, (1894) a band of fifty-two cattlemen and hired gunmen invaded Johnson Country, Wyoming, in April 1892 killing and terrorizing the settlers. Through the raising of the timber and canvas roller skating rink within the gallery, Duggan’s ambitious installation transports gallery visitors through the frontier lands of Wyoming and American Western Cinema as seen in Michael Cimino’s Heavens’s Gate (1980).
