'Two For Joy'
Wexford Street/Kevin Street, Dublin 2
2016 - 2019
Dublin City Council
The piece draws inspiration from Irish superstitions surrounding magpies and the rhyme about them "One for sorrow, two for joy...". I myself have a slight obsession with counting magpies and particularly finding pairs of them as I believe them to be a good luck charm ie. two for joy. The piece takes the form of a playing card, the two of hearts, showing the connection between joy and love. I would like for my piece to serve as some good luck to the superstitious people of Dublin.
