‘Unconscious Carpets’ Radio Show by Ciarán Wood
Location: Cashmere Radio, Berlin
Unconscious Carpets is an iteration of a concept radio show by Ciarán Wood. It originally premiered at Berlin Art Week through Cashmere Radio’s “Portals Allies.” Mixing live elements of writing, performance and archival video, Wood invited a selection of artists and musicians to contribute to a collective “arrival”, taking different forms of a speculative journey between Ireland and London. The listener finds themselves at the intersection of collective memory, through the sodden carpeted interior of a North London Irish pub, once the epicentre of the city’s Irish community. This is a place to pass through or remain, until (as many are now) the pubs are closed, and redeveloped.
