Connecting architecture and literature, artist and architect Colin Priest has installed a city-wide site-specific intervention titled SLOW READ HERE. Conceived as a contemporary rustication, a type of architectural finishing commonly found across Dublin’s older buildings will ‘slow’ the reading of space. Starting at the Irish Architecture Foundation and ending at the Irish Architectural Archive the work found on windows, hoardings and objects, set to gently encourage new street-level stories and a fresh perspective to the city’s new, old and fragile architectures. Colin has exhibited across the UK and internationally with works that incorporate intervention, writing and performance associated with spatial production and experience of built histories.
