ʻO Gerry Blake, Monaghan Town, 2019, kiʻi; ʻoluʻolu o ka mea pena kiʻi a me Municipal Gallery, dlr Lexicon. ʻO Gerry Blake, Monaghan Town, 2019, kiʻi; ʻoluʻolu o ka mea pena kiʻi a me Municipal Gallery, dlr Lexicon.

ʻO ka hōʻikeʻike a Gerry Blake, 'Home Place', ma ka Municipal Gallery, hōʻike ʻo dlr Lexicon i ke ʻano o nā kiʻi paʻi kiʻi o nā poʻe ma ko lākou mau home a me kahi ʻano o nā hale hakahaka, i hoʻomohala ʻia e ka mea pena i nā makahiki ʻekolu i hala, ʻoiai e huakaʻi ana a puni ʻo Ireland. Ma kēia pōʻaiapili, paʻi ke kiʻi i nā hana ʻelua o ka moʻolelo a me ka palapala. Hoʻokumu ʻia nā hana ma hope o ka inoa mua o kēlā me kēia kumuhana, kahi e hoʻohui ai i ka pumehana a me ka manaʻo pilikino i nā kiʻi pili. 

ʻO ka hapa nui o nā lepili paia he mau huaʻōlelo pololei mai ke kumuhana o ke kiʻi; Hōʻike nā leo pākahi i ko lākou loaʻa ʻana i ko lākou home, a i ke kumu o ko lākou noho ʻana ma kēia wahi. Hoʻohana ʻia ka ʻōlelo pololei a me ke kamaʻilio ʻana, e wehewehe ana i ke ola i loko o nā hale, nā kaʻa i hoʻololi ʻia, nā waʻa a me nā ʻāpana hale. He ʻano moʻolelo ko ka hale kiʻi kiʻi, e lawe ana i nā ʻano microworlds, i hana ʻia e ka manaʻo paʻa ʻole o kēlā me kēia kumuhana e loaʻa ka mana kūʻokoʻa, kahi pilikino a me ka hanohano. Ua like ka nui o na hana ma ke akea nui a ua like ka mamao o ke kaawale, e hooikaika ana i na moolelo okoa. Hōʻike ka pā ʻāpana i kahi kiʻi paʻi kiʻi ʻole o ka mea i ʻike ʻia he hale haʻalele ʻia ma hope o ka pā lāʻau, me kahi hale Victorian nui a waiho ʻole ma kēlā ʻaoʻao.

He kiʻi i hōʻike ʻia ma ka moʻo, me ke poʻo inoa Kamla, ʻo ia ka mea haʻaheo nona ka hale ma Cork. Mālama ʻia nā pua nani a mālama ʻia a me ke ʻano pilikino o ke kumuhana i ka lewa ikaika o ke ola home. ʻO ka ʻāpana ʻO Cian Hōʻike ʻo ia i ka mea nona ka waʻa hou i holo mai ʻEnelani a i ʻIlelani. Hoʻokomo piha ʻia ʻo ia i loko o ka moku, ʻo ka mālamalama maoli e hoʻomālamalama iā ia, ʻoiai e hōʻike ana i kona hoʻomau ʻana i ka hana ʻana i hale. Eoin e noho ana ma waho o kona hale hou. ʻO kāna kūlana e hōʻoiaʻiʻo ana ua ʻoluʻolu ʻo ia i ke kaʻina hana o ka hoʻoponopono hou ʻana, i hoʻopuni ʻia e nā mea hana a me ka crumbling, momona momona. 

Angela He kiʻi ia o ka wahine i loko o kāna lumi kuke i piha i ka mālamalama, e hoʻokani ana i ke kiʻi kiʻi noʻonoʻo o Jackie Nickerson. Seamus Heaney (1932-2013), Poet, Playwright, Unuhi, Nobel Laureate (2007), waiho ʻia ma ka hōʻiliʻili National Gallery of Ireland. ʻO ka mālamalama, e hoʻohana ana i kahi balm o ka maluhia i loaʻa a pau ʻole. Ana hōʻike i kahi wahine e noho ana ma nā ʻanuʻu o kahi kaʻa kaʻa i hoʻololi ʻia kahi āna i noho ai no ka makahiki i hala. Ua wehewehe ʻo ia i ka logistics o ka hoʻokō ʻana i kona home, a me ke kūʻokoʻa e hāʻawi iā ia. He mea koʻikoʻi kona noho ʻana ma nā ʻanuʻu e like me ke ʻano e noho ai kekahi ma kahi kūlou a i ʻole ka lanai o waho o ka hale. ʻO ke kiʻi ʻO Jin hōʻike i ke kumuhana e kau ana me kāna kaʻa kaʻa ma waho o ka hale. Hōʻike ʻo ia i ke kumukūʻai o ka hoʻolimalima ʻana me nā poʻe mākua ʻē aʻe, akā maikaʻi loa ia. ʻO ka loaʻa ʻana o kāna paikikala i ka lima e hōʻike ana i ka makemake no ke kūʻokoʻa.

ʻO nā ʻāpana ʻo Dāvida a Lois hōʻike i ka makua kāne a me ke kaikamahine ma nā kiʻi like ʻole; paʻi ʻia nā kumuhana ʻelua i loko o ke kaʻa. Hōʻike ka lepili me ka manaʻo o ka pono i ka holo ʻana o David i ke kaʻa i kona kahua a hana ʻo ia i mea e noho ai. Ua ʻōlelo ʻo ia, "He kīʻaha, nā moena, kahi lua wai wai a me kahi pahu e lawe ai i ka wai mai kahi pahu i waho". Hoʻopiha ʻia nā kiʻi ʻelua me nā mea he nui, nā papa, nā ʻupena, a me nā kukui palupalu, e haʻi ana i kahi moʻolelo o ka pumehana home. Ke nānā nei ʻo David i lalo me ka noʻonoʻo a me ka ʻoluʻolu, akā aia nā ʻāpana o ke kaumaha ma luna ona. Ke nānā nei ʻo Lois i luna, me ke kapa ʻālohilohi, i kālai ʻia e ke kāʻei o nā mea ʻoluʻolu e like me ka koko, ka ipu hao, ka umu, ka ipu kofe a me ka lole gingham.

Ma ke kua o ka hale kiʻi, hōʻike ʻia kahi ʻāpana liʻiliʻi o nā kiʻi ʻē aʻe, ʻaʻahu like ʻole a me ka curation. ʻO 'Empty Houses' kahi pahu kiʻi o nā hale hakahaka ma ʻIlelani. Ma hope o ka neʻe ʻana i nā kiʻi mahana, ʻoiaʻiʻo, paʻakikī, a pāʻani hoʻi o nā poʻe i ko lākou mau home, ʻo kēia ʻāpana o ka hōʻike ke kū nei i ka mea nānā me kahi ʻano o nā hale haʻalele ʻole ʻia. Ma loko o nā ʻāpana he 16, ua pau kekahi mau hale i ke ahi, ua mālama ʻole ʻia kekahi, a aia kekahi mau hale i haʻalele ʻia. He puka hāmama ko kekahi, e hōʻike ana i ka mea i hiki mai ma mua a i ʻole e pili ana i ka mea e pono ai. ʻO ka hāmau e kau ana ma luna o kēia mau kiʻi e kaʻana like ana i ka noʻonoʻo o nā ʻōlelo a ka mea pena kiʻi Pelekane ʻo George Shaw no ka ʻaina ahiahi. I ka hoʻohālikelike ʻana i nā kiʻi pena a Shaw o nā hale kaʻawale kaʻawale, ʻo ke kiʻi ʻo Blake he palapala maʻemaʻe o nā hale paʻa, mālama ʻole ʻia ma ke ʻano he mau mea maoli, ʻo ko lākou noho mālie ʻana me ka paʻa mau. 

Ma ke ano, pilikia 'o 'Home Place' i kona ma'alahi; ʻaʻole ia e hoʻoponopono i nā pilikia o ka pilikia hale, akā e ʻoki i ka puʻuwai o ka pilikia. Hōʻike ʻo 'Empty Houses' i ka hoʻohana hewa ʻole ʻana i ka ʻāina a me nā kumuwaiwai i hiki ʻole ke hānai i kā mākou pilina me nā hale. Ma ke ʻano holoʻokoʻa, hōʻike ka hōʻikeʻike i kona manaʻo ponoʻī, kahi e hoʻomaopopo ai nā hale a me nā kānaka a pale kekahi i kekahi. 

He mea kākau kiʻi ʻo Jennie Taylor e noho ana a e hana ana ma Dublin.
