21/07/2022. : Memento Mori. Pictured is artist Paula Stokes with Former President of Ireland, Mary Robinsonat in Patrick’s Hall at Dublin Castle .Former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, launched Memento Mori – a memorial installation dedicated to the Great Irish Famine – in St Patrick’s Hall at Dublin Castle. The stark, simple banquet table which holds the inedible crop of 1,845 hand-blown, ghostly white glass potatoes created by artist Paula Stokes is laden with symbolism and meaning in this location that served as the centre of opulence and power at a time of starvation, mass emigration and misery outside the Castle’s gates.Photo:Leah Farrell/Photocallireland
