Weekend loves: This week’s must do, see & buy

SEE THIS: A truly unique concept from artist Alan James Burns, he brings his new work, Entirely Hollow Aside From The Dark, to five caves across the country.

Beginning Thursday in Sligo, this is a psycho-acousticsound event in our natural, ancient auditoriums. An immersive installation, it promises a symphony of sound using the cave as a physical metaphor for the brain as the artist taps into our inner dialogue. 

Made in collaboration with sound editor Ian Dunphy and writer Sue Rainer, it reaches Lickhill Cave in Skibbereen on August 2, concluding in Fermanagh in September.
