The word ‘eisc’ or sometimes ‘eask’ appears in mountain place names in Irish: Eisc an Tairbh [bull] and Eisc na mBroc [badger] to mean ravine, fissure or fault. [from Irish Hill and Mountain Names database compiled by Simon Stewart] and is a possible explaination of the etymology of ‘Eask Tower’ and ‘Dun Eask’ which can be seen from the Dingle Hub. It is used in this instance to curatorially stress a preoccupation artists in the exhibition have in trying to find alternate ways to define [our relationship to] place and landscape.
